Wilshire Ward: Interior

 The interior of this chapel is stunning. It has a number of details, but the most impressive features are the stained glass. All of these pictures are found in the rededication program of this building, from 2003.


There is a main window at the front of the chapel. Other tall windows continue along one side of the chapel and cultural hall. These contain symbols like doves and chalices.




 The window at the front of the chapel shows Christ knocking at the door. Notice the alpha and omega symbols at the bottom.


I've found a picture of the stained glass where it's more brightly lit here, although it has a watermark unless you buy it. This window was actually based off of William Holman Hunt's painting, The Light of the World, and you can see the resemblance.


I'm so happy that this building continues to be used regularly, and that it has been preserved.
