Virgin Mary and Infant Jesus

We are told in the Gospels that the eternal Son of God united Himself to human life, human history, and to each and every human being. He did this by entering into the womb of Mary and taking from her, all necessary qualities of human nature. The second element of the Trinity was not united to a human person but to human nature.  Since Christ, He who was born from her, who died on the cross, and who rose from death was very God.  Mary is known as the "Mother of God."

This first of the three Mary windows is on the south side of the sanctuary, near the Priest's chair.  It is a typical Madonna and Child. Mary is dressed in blue and red. The blue color normally represents humanity and red normally represents divinity. Her humanity, like ours, was united to God. The Christ child is clothed in glistening white.

At the top of the window is the Holy Spirit shown as a dove. It is the Holy Spirit that caused the Son to be conceived in Mary.  The Holy Spirit also causes the Son to dwell in us.  The Holy Spirit comes upon the bread and wine and is what makes them become the Body and Blood of Christ.  It is appropriate that this window is placed near the altar.

At St. Alban’s we strive to grow in our relationship with God, both as individuals and as church. A key part of that growth is Christian formation/education. Christian formation is a lifelong process of learning, developing and growing, which includes education for both children and adults. But true Christian Formation is actually more than merely a process of learning and acquiring knowledge or information. It involves forming us as disciples of Jesus Christ and equipping us to “do the work (he has) given us to do; to love and serve (God) as faithful witnesses of Christ our Lord.” BCP pg. 366.  

Our Christian formation/education hour is held September –May and begins at 9:00 AM, between the two services.

St. Alban's is an Episcopal Church in the Episcopal Diocese of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  We are a lively, enthusiastic congregation joyfully living our Mission From God through community, outreach, formation, and worship.  Together we are proud to honor where we come from, together we are living as God's beloved day by day, and together we are growing into the future God dreams for us.
