The Last Supper

The ancient tradition of depicting the Last Supper as a Mass continues even into modern times, as the Apostles are shown kneeling before the chalice. Until the liturgical reforms of 1969 Catholics knelt to receive Communion.

The church was constructed in 1947, but the window may be from a later date.
