The Crucifixion

North of the chancel and behind the organ console is the Working Sacristy where the Altar Guild and the Flower Guild do their important work.  Above the linen chest is a mural that is a gift from John de Rosen to the women of Saint John’s in grateful appreciation for their many kindnesses shown the muralist during his more than two-year residence among us.  The subject is Jesus on the cross, flanked by Saint Mary, his mother, and Saint John the Evangelist, the namesake of our church (John 19:25-26). This mural measures about twenty-four by thirty-six inches and is painted in silver and gold on dark blue. Its gold tones closely mimic the look of the baptism of Jesus in the Holy Spirit Chapel.
