Felician Sister Creates Stained Glass for Ghana

Christ the King Cathedral in Ghana, West Africa will have a stained glass window created by Felician Sr. Mary Ann Therese Kelly.

A beautiful stained glass window created by Felician Sister Mary Ann Therese Kelly, Megan McElfresh, and Barbara Steffan is now on its way to Ghana, West Africa, where it will be installed in Christ the King Cathedral.

Commissioned by Bishop Matthew Gymfi of the Synyani Diocese, the window is eight feet tall and consists of two panels which depict Earth viewed from Africa, surrounded by the noosphere (the spiritual aura surrounding the earth as described by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin). The Eucharistic host is within, overlapping the country of Ghana as a blessing.

The country of Ghana is shown in gold, a transformational color, and above is the Holy Spirit surrounded by the kente cloth, traditionally produced for only the tribal king, representing Christ the King.

This is the first of many windows that will be produced for Christ the King Cathedral at Illumination Glass Studio, which is operated by Sister Ann Therese. To see more of Sr. Ann Therese’s work, visit her blog here.

Serving where needed since 1874

Founded in Poland in 1855, the Felician Sisters are a congregation of women religious inspired by the spiritual ideals of their foundress, Blessed Mary Angela Truszkowska, and Saints Francis of Assisi, Clare of Assisi and Felix of Cantalice. Arriving in North America in 1874 following Blessed Mary Angela’s directive “to serve where needed,” they helped to weave the social service system. Today, the Felician Sisters founded, sponsor or support through the presence of our sisters, more than 40 ministries – all continuing to evolve to meet the needs of the people they serve.
