Stained Glass Windows and Statue

Stained Glass Windows and Statue

In the year 1987, the stained glass windows created by Croatian artist, Branimir Dorotic, were installed in St. James Church. When standing in the Church, facing the altar, the windows on the right depict 14 scenes from the life of Our Lady while those on the left portray scenes pertaining to the apparitions of Our Lady in Medjugorje. Also in this year, Italian artist Dino Felici finished the marble statue of Our Lady, Queen of Peace that was placed in front of St. James Church. It is encircled by flower beds and a wrought-iron fence. It has become a popular site for pilgrims, a place to lay their hearts before Our Lady. There is often a flower placed in Her outstretched hand.
