This is my final article in the History series featuring the sanctuary items. I hope you found the series interesting. Future articles, which will be added periodically, will include a variety of topics and facts.
You probably have noticed the wonderful banners in the sanctuary which change periodically based on the liturgical seasons, such as Advent, Christmas, Lent, and Easter. Some of the banners are also displayed in Thurber Hall from time to time.
The list below includes the individual who either made the banner or donated it.
If you are curious about a banner that is hanging in the sanctuary, you can refer to this list in the narthex for details.
