St. Nicholas Chapel
The St. Nicholas Chapel, located in the Education Building, is used for St. Paul's mid-week Holy Communion, and the occasional small funeral or baptism. A lovely and quiet space, the Chapel features the stunning "Creation Window," six magnificent windows positioned in two triptychs. These modern stained-glass windows bring dazzling color and light to the wonder of God’s gift of creation. They were designed and fabricated by stained-glass artist Steve Wilson, of Baton Rouge, LA.
The first window is called "Nebula" and features a multi-layered blue glass vortex above green and gold earth elements.
The second window entitled, "St. Nicholas," features him with mitre and staff. Children, like the stars in the sky, gather in his presence.
Known as "Thunderstorm," the third window reflects images from Native American creation accounts.
"Spirit of Light" describes the artist’s expression of God’s creative presence through a Pentecost brightness of red light in the fourth window.
The fifth window is called "Chi Sign" because of its primal symbol of the Chi ( Χ or χ ) for Christ.
The "Moon and Spiral" as sixth window is known, contains both symbols gleaming with intensity and shedding their light and color on the Chapel altar.
St. Paul's is very proud of its elegant little chapel, and we welcome everyone to experience its unique spiritual qualities.
