Church Of Our Lord - Eliza Harris Memorial Window

On Monday I posted a photo of the exterior of the Church Of Our Lord and promised some photos of the interior. Victoria has many hidden jewels and here is one, the stained glass window given in memory of Eliza Harris, wife of Victoria's first mayor, Thomas Harris. Eliza Harris was respected for her charitable works and her window depicts the biblical character Dorcas, who was well-known for clothing the poor. This window was donated in 1890 and a special opening in the Prayer Chapel was created for it.

Greetings from Australia.
A beautiful photo of a beautiful window. I love the stained glass windows, the workmanship that goes into them is a great art. This one is particularly eye-catching.

Beautiful. So nice to see a window of someone from the Bible who is not so well known.

Oh that is truly a beautiful window! I didn't realize Victoria had such a treasure. I'll certainly have to try and see it next time I'm in Victoria, hopefully next summer.
And you photographed it well too.
