These stained glass windows date back to 1932 when St. Emery’s Church was founded.
The window on the left shows the Blessed Virgin Mary being dedicated to God with St. Joachim (father) and St. Ann (mother) beside her. The window on the right depicts the Pentecost with the Apostles and Blessed Virgin Mary receiving the Holy Spirit.
