Nativity - Epiphany

The Nativity-Epiphany stained glass window at St. Michael in Old TownThis window shows the most common Christmas scene, the manger scene with the three kings. With the three kings in the window and knowing they actually showed up days later it is truly a nativity and epiphany scene. At the top of the main scene is an angel holding the banner inscribed “Gloria in Excelsis Deo” and above that there is the star that brought the three kings to the manger.

All of the kings are dressed so resplendently. This is a great comparison to Jesus and the Holy Family in the poor setting of the birth of the Son of God. This window is placed right next to the Holy Family Altar (also known as the Saint Joseph Altar) and adds continuity to this corner of the church.
