The eight murals in the nave of Saint John’s were designed and executed by John Henry DeRosen in 1951-53 after consultation with The Rev. Alfred Loaring-Clark, rector, Lucian Minor Dent, a parishioner and the church’s architect, and donors.  Two murals are of abstract composition while the other six are illustrations of events in The Bible and in the early history of the Christian church.  The murals not only beautify the church, but also glorify God and serve to remind us that God in the person of Jesus Christ is ever present with us.
