The art glass for St. Mary’s Medical Center - Essentia Health Hospital Chapel portrays the last meeting of Saint Scholastica and Saint Benedict. It is a beautiful, and very old story about having one last chance to be together before saying goodbye. Elements of a light shaft and dove are included with the embrace of brother and sister one last time. The Benedictine Sisters gifted this window to the hospital and they wanted to convey this story in a very contemporary way, so that the embrace you see depicted in the glass is a gesture that anyone could relate to.
