Our Lady of Hope Provincialate Chapel
Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania
Installed in 2012
Sister Ann Therese Kelly designed and created this wonderful set of stained glass windows that reach about 40 feet across and 5 feet tall. It represents St. Francis of Assisi's "Canticle of the Sun", a poem about God's creation. Sun, moon, stars, wind, water, fire, mother earth.
On the two wings are four saints that represent the Felician congregation: St. Francis of Assisi, St. Felix of Cantalice on the left, and St. Clare of Assisi, Mary Angela Truszkowska on the right. The saints are all facing into creation, blessing the work of our maker, gathering the energy of the cosmos.
