“Windows of Wonder and Love” on sale November 26th.

By Sharron Hanna.

As a glance at the Newswest community calendar listings can readily attest: Church-going volunteers this time of year are busy mounting the annual barrage of fund-raising bazaars. St Martin’s in McKellar Park is no exception. Organizers there with a penchant for alliteration have dubbed their fundraiser the Christmas “ Bake Shop, Bistro and Baubles Bonanza” set to take place Saturday, November 26th.

Amid the array of yuletide yummies, crafts, jewellery and décor items, there is one very special, standout item to be had among the “bonanza baubles”: And that is the 2017 wall calendar featuring twelve of the twenty memorial stained glass windows that adorn the church side aisles. The windows were the work of the late Theo Lubbers. Their creation spanned almost the entire period of his career as a liturgical artist from 1957 to his death in 1993. Under the careful eye of professional photographer Glenn Bloodworth the full radiance of each window has been expertly captured. Entitled “Windows of Wonder and Love”, organizers hope the calendar’s modest price and convenient size will prove the perfect Christmas gift.
