Chandelier Installation - 12/22/13

Glory to God!  Two generous donations commissioned the spectacular Byzantine chandelier that now graces St. Thomas Orthodox Church.  The chandelier was designed and installed by Andrew Gould.  It is modeled upon the 'Munich Choros', a medieval Byzantine fixture similar to the one still in place in the Decani Monastery, Kosovo.  The bars include an inscription in ornamental lettering from the book of Revelation: "There shall be no night there, and they need no candle, neither light of the sun, for the Lord God giveth them light, and they shall reign for ever and ever." (Rev. 22:5)
