This new window ‘with gratitude for the life of Jean Marie Welborn 1929-1986’ was installed 25 July 1989. It shows St Raphael the healer and alludes to an incident in the Book of Tobit. The river is also a powerful symbol, suggestive of Baptism, cleansing, and healing. As with the two west windows, the artist is the acclaimed Thomas Denny.
