Stained Glass Windows
Altar Window: The altar window is one of the oldest surviving stained glass windows in Hawai’i. Made of local glass to local design, it was installed in 1914 as a memorial to the father of the Rev. Canon Yin Tet Kong, who served as pastor of St Peter’s Church from 1896 to 1927.
Sanctuary Windows: The notable windows in the sanctuary, designed and crafted by Lithuanian-born artist Brone Jameikis, were installed in the 1970s and early 1980s. Jameikis chose to use faceted rather than leaded glass, shaping each piece to create angles that refract and reflect light. She worked closely with donor families to design windows holding personal meaning. Thus, while the theme of Jameikis windows is Revelation, the windows also have birds, flowers, or stars in developing the designs with family members. Windows also have a bit of Hawaii incorporated into the designs — a rainbow, fish, the blue Pacific.
Chancel Windows: Judson Studios designed Chancel windows, which were installed in the late 1980s. Also sponsored by donor families, these windows explore wide-ranging themes from the eucharist to Chinese clergy to Christian martyrs.
Bell Tower Windows: Judson Studios also crafted the bell tower windows. These windows, installed in the late 1980s, symbolize the history of the Christian Church by acknowledging Christian saints who had a role in bringing Christianity to east Asia, The New World, and Europe.
