Fishers of Men Window (upper section)

Possibly Hobbs, Montreal

circa 1906

This spectacular and intriguing window is one of the finest we have seen in Saskatchewan. With its elaborate faux stone niche painting and rich colouration, it glows splendidly after the first hundred years of what we trust will be a long life. The scene depicted shows Jesus recruiting two of his Apostles, Simon Peter and Andrew by the Sea of Galilee.

"And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee saw two brethren, Simon, called Peter, and Andrew his brother… casting a net into the sea… He said to them follow me and I will make you fishers of men. And they straight away left their nets and followed him."
