Symbolism in the Church of the Good Shepherd
The Church of the Good Shepherd was built in 1895 using the finest materials available and employing many Christian symbols throughout its structure. It is impossible for one to sit in a pew of the Church without admiring the beautiful woodwork, windows, and its overall calming elegance. Symbolism is intertwined through out everything about our Church, from ornamentation, to Church lay out.
This web site makes an attempt to explain some of the symbols within our Church.
"In Christian Symbolism we must learn not to merely to look at the symbols but to look through them to the truth which they express."
