Chapel Windows XIII: Unity and Diversity

Unity, Diversity

The Benedictine charism is to seek God as members of a cenobitic community and to respond through prayer and ministry. This charism is reflected in symbol in the beautiful stained glass windows in our chapel.


Unity and Diversity are symbolized by a three-flowered plant and a sphere with an equal sign.

From one seed emerges all gifts from God. Each of us shares the same Gospel vision but there are as many equal but separate reflections of this vision as there are members in the community.

Let nothing be preferred to the Work of God – Rule of Benedict 43:3
