Holy Week

The fifth window symbolizes the drama and horror and mystery and hope of Holy Week . From the triumph of Palm Sunday through the blessing of Maundy Thursday into the depths of Good Friday resulting in the jubilation of Easter Morning, Holy Week mirrors the drama of salvation at the heart of Christian Faith.

The two windows of Holy Week were presented to Charleswood United Church as a thank offering of “The Heritage Fund” which was established by Charleswood United Church during our 75th year as a means to support this ministry through the contribution of planned or estate gifts. The first such gift was given to the church, in the form of a life insurance policy from the estate of Jim Tjaden. The Council of CUC chose to express thanks to Jim and to launch The Heritage Fund by placing these two windows in the sanctuary.
