Memorial Windows


The spectacularly beautiful stain glass memorial windows were installed in the 1970’s. The first was the St. Peter window, dedicated to the memory of Lewis Carr. Other windows quickly followed in memory of individuals and families who had lived and worshipped here.

In addition to St. Peter, these gem-like windows portray the Virgin and Child, St. Cecilia, St. Francis, St. Dorothea, St. Andrew, St. Jude, and John the Apostle. Among the symbols they bear, many are associated with the Christian church, as well as with the New Jersey coast environment.

With the completion of the organ alcove addition to the Nave, two beautiful stained glass windows were placed there, given by Tom and Debbie MacArthur.  One window illustrates the Raising of Jairus' Daughter and the other of Jesus Calming the Storm on the Lake of Galilee.

Also adorning this historic and artistic edifice are many relief carved-oak furnishings, rich with religious symbols and a nautical flavor, by local artist Tom Martie. These, as well as the church's natural wood interior, stain glass windows and triptych calls to each heart to worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.
