Agnus Dei

Agnus Dei or Lamb of God is a title given to Jesus representing His role as the sacrificial lamb atoning for our sins.  The bible has several references to Jesus as the Lamb of God most notably when John the Baptist says "Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world." John 1:29 

This representation, surrounded by the symbols of the 4 gospel writers, is similar to one used since the 5th century on Catholic

This window is located in the sacristy.
