Left to right: Lights 1-4
Light 1: A cross with a background of rays, known as a radiant cross. Light 2: A Fleur-de-Lys (a symbol both of Our Lady and of the Holy Trinity). Light 3: A hammer and ladder intersecting in the form of a X. The hammer and ladder are both used as symbols of Our Lord’s Passion. The hammer used to nail Jesus to the cross and the ladder to help bring him down after the crucifixion. There are three nails in a semicircle around the base of the panel, three nails are used to symbolize the crucifixion, two nails through pinning Christ’s hands to the cross and one through his feet. Light 4: A baptismal cross, with a scallop shell in the centre. The scallop shell is the traditional symbol of baptism and for centuries has also been used to signify pilgrimage.
In the ceiling of the organ loft is a round window which depicts a crown of thorns superimposed over a (Greek) cross.
A window depicting the lyre of King David against the background of a (Greek) cross is located in the stairwell leading up to the organ loft.
