  • Gracious and loving God, we thank you for sending your life-giving Spirit to dwell with us in the community of Emmanuel Parish; infuse us with passion for worship of you, and for service to the greater community of Cumberland and beyond. Give us wisdom and perseverance in being a mutually supportive, inviting and inclusive congregation; and help us in all things to follow the example of him whom we call “God with us,” even Jesus Christ, in whose name we pray.

    - Amen

Other Stained Glass

Emmanuel is blessed by works of a number of other notable artists.

The English Pre-Raphaelite artist Henry Holiday made Jesus with Mary of Bethany in the late 19th Century. This is one of only three places in the United States where his work may be seen.

Charles Goodhue of Cambridge, MA executed St. Monica and St. Augustine in the medieval French Gothic style.

McGill Mackall, who was very popular as both an artist and teacher in the mid-20th Century made several windows for Emmanuel, including the one in the Cloister that greets all who come to visit or to worship.

At the back of the Church are several imaginative windows from the late 1960’s celebrating Cumberland’s industrial life and the works of nature that surround the area.

The oldest piece of stained glass is a painted window dating from 1883 depicting St. John and St. Paul.

Emmanuel offers visitors a self-guided tour of the art and artwork. For the text of this brochure, click on Church Windows.
