Our Stained-Glass Showcase

This page is dedicated to the Community of MCCSF, those that have gone before us and those that are here now.

The Stained Glass Windows at 150 Eureka are all hand made and dedicated to various MCCSF Members, loved ones, and Congregants who have gone before us.

We offer this page, these pictures, and these memories of those special people who contributed in so many ways to highlight that we are a Community Of People, who love, worship, share, and support each other every day of our lives.

Thank you to all who have contributed to MCC San Francisco by making it sparkle and shine, just as each piece of the Stained Glass at 150 Eureka brightens our sanctuary. We love you dearly and will never forget!

The 12-window project dedicated in 1993 is called “Heavenly Wind” and is an abstraction representing God’s breath flowing through the sanctuary and congregation. Each pair of windows incorporates a color from the rainbow which is a symbol of pride, unity, and celebration in the LGBT Communities.
