An, as yet, unexplained phenomenon occurs in one of the windows in this stately church each day as the sun is setting. The image resembling the crucifixion of Christ appears in only one of the windows, although it is of the same hue, consistency and construction as all the others. To date, no chemical or physical explanation has been found, and the occurrence is widely accepted as a form of stigmata. The window is of hammered, amber glass and grants an amazingly clear picture of the scenes at Golgotha. For visits, phone and arrange details.
