Immanuel Crosses

new Immanuel Chapel cross
 
The beautiful nine-foot cross that graces our services in Immanuel Chapel, and the scaled-down matching cross that crowns the sanctuary at Zabriskie Chapel, were gifts from a parish family, and the result of thoughtful design work by Immanuel parishioner and architect Tom Kerns.

The crosses are made from wood salvaged from the old Immanuel Chapel at the Seminary following the 2010 fire. Indeed, one can see burn marks upon close inspection of the wood.

The corners of the crosses contain stained glass rescued from the windows of the old chapel after the fire. The stained glass portions also contain bits of clear glass, to let God’s natural light pour through.
