Overview

The theme of the stained glass window is “Ode to the Sister Moon and the Brother Sun” by St. Francis of Assisi. Unique to Marin Catholic, this devotional work of art features the outline of Mount Tamalpais, which may be seen through the colored glass. The window portrays symbols of faith, including the fire of the Holy Spirit, surrounding the central cross.

Goals

Marin Catholic's St. Francis Chapel, which is located at the south end of campus, offers students a space to remove themselves from the bustle of day-to-day life. This sacred and contemplative space allows members of the community to connect spiritually in a number of ways, including Mass, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, prayer, meditation, and reflection.
