The Dean of Connor, the Very Rev Rev John Bond dedicated a stained glass window in memory of Mrs Pamela McKee in St Patrick’s Parish Church, Broughshane.
The window was the gift of Pamela’s husband Alastair, son Peter and daughter Sophie, and the deication took place on Sunday December 16.
The theme of the window is ‘Humility,’ based on St Matthew 18: 4: ‘Whosoever becomes humble like a child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.’ Jesus is depicted holding a child in his arms watched by his mother.
Dean Bond said: “Pamela died just a year ago after a courageous battle against cancer. A lady with many gifts and talents, she was very much involved with St Patrick’s and had a strong faith in God which she expressed in action.
“She had a very distinguished career as a librarian and pioneered audio visual material in primary and post–primary schools.”
Dean Bond said this beautiful window not only enhanced the church but was a powerful teaching medium. “It draws us to the love and care of Jesus for the most vulnerable in our society .. a child, so trusting, so loving and a mother who knows that her child is in safe hands,” the Dean said.
“As we look at this magnificent window, we are challenged by its message… encouraged by its simplicity and meaning… and we see so much of Pamela in its presentation.”
