The window takes the life and work of three Redemptorists as its theme, namely Saint John Neumann, The Blessed Kaspar Stanggassinger and the Blessed Peter Donders.
The left panel shows the Blessed Kaspar Stanggassinger teaching a group of German students with the school in the background.
The centre panel shows St John Neumann who was assigned by the Bishop of New York to work with recent German immigrants. He is depicted welcoming a poor family, father, and mother with a child in her arms. St John was consecrated in Baltimore as Bishop of Philadelphia and is shown in vestments. His shrine, is at St. Peter the Apostle Church in Philadelphia. The church depicted at the foot of the panel is St Philomena's Philadelphia, the Cathedral Church where he lived and worked as a Bishop.
The right panel illustrates the Blessed Peter Donders in Dutch Guiana (now the Republic of Suriname), administering to the sick in a leper colony. Native huts and a palm tree form the background, setting the scene and balancing the school in the left panel.
In the tracery above are symbols of sacraments, flanking the figure of Our Lady in the centre.
The new stained glass window was blessed by Archbishop Kelly on Friday the 16th October 2009 - the Feast of St Gerard Majella.
The window has been produced by Pendle Stained Glass Ltd of Padiham, and is composed of Hand –Made Glass throughout.
MILLENNIUM "JUBILEE" WINDOW
The theme for the window is Jubilee, expressing the idea of freedom, renewal and the breaking of chains. The bright colours used express light and new life, with the children in the window representing new beginnings, abundant possibilities and future development.
THE TRINITY: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. In the tracery is a sun meaning God the Creator and at the centre is Christ the King. The Dove is the symbol of the Holy Spirit, 'The Spirit of the Lord is upon me'. This theme is also shown symbolically, three in one, by the three interlaced circles in various tinted whites. Inside the circles the colours are white and gold, reminding us that Christ is 'The Light of the World'.
THE EUCHARIST: Represented in the centre panel by the figure of Christ the King, holding a chalice, 'Do this in remembrance of me'. Behind Christ is a cross, coloured green, the living cross, the symbol of spring, the triumph of life over death, regeneration and hope. Below the central figure is an 'oikumene' shell with water issuing, the symbol of the sacrament of Baptism and the ecumenical life of our church, 'One Lord, one faith, one baptism'.
THE COMMUNITY: With the Eucharist as the centre, there are two family groups, one in each side light, of different ethnic origins. Behind the figure of Christ are indications of buildings and dwellings, symbols of the community. The two cathedrals of Liverpool have also been included in the background.
SYMBOLS: At the bottom are shown:- The Redemptorist crest, logos for CAFOD (Third World Development), SPUC (Protection of Unborn Children), LAMP (Support of Archdiocesan priests working in Latin America) and SURVIVE-MIVA (Liverpool charity providing transport for missionaries). The Whole Window represents the sacramental life of the Church.
The window was designed and made to our brief by PENDLE STAINED GLASS OF PADIHAM, LANCASHIRE, and was dedicated on June 15th, 2000, by THE MOST REVEREND PATRICK KELLY, ARCHBISHOP OF LIVERPOOL.
