Bethany School Chapel 5

Easter Altar Frontal

Bethany School Chapel, Cincinnati, Ohio

Mary Magdalene has just arrived at the tomb and is shocked to see the stone has been rolled away; the light of Christ still issues forth from inside. The colours to the left and right of the time are the colours of the rainbow, signifying God’s covenant to always care for us. Because this frontal is for children, and at the request of the Chaplain, it has extra text on it so that it can also be used as a teaching tool. Eight quotations from the “man in white robes” tell Mary that Christ has risen and gone into Galilee, where she and the other disciples will see him again.
