these symbols are the eleven

Near the tops of each window
is an image that pertains to
the Christian Year, starting

The Sanctuary itself was built to symbolize the Church itself being the
Ark of Salvation and there are special ecclesiastical names that refer to
the various parts of the church. Some of these are the Nave, the
Narthex, the Baptismal Font. You can read a more detailed article about
