the windows

The stained glass windows were all placed in the church at various times after it had been opened by Bishop Moorhouse. The memorial windows for Catherine McLeod in the chancel, made in Brussels at a cost of 10 pounds, were the first to be installed shortly after the opening of the church, then the three small windows in the apse (two of them from Brussels at a cost of one pound each) By early 1881 the large two-light window in memory of Simon Staughton with the three small round windows above and all the windows on the northern side were in the church. By late 1881 W. H. Bacchus was negotiating to have the memorial windows to his father Captain W. H. Bacchus and his sister, Eliza, placed in the southern wall. These cost twenty pounds each and were made by Ferguson and Urie,  of Melbourne. Melbournes first and leading craftsmen of this art. Ferguson and Urie were also responsible for a number of other windows which had been placed in the church. Emma and Molesworth Greene's memorial windows were placed in the church in 1905 1nd 1919 and the Hopkin's window in 1938.
