17-03-1882: Christ Church, South Yarra. Melbourne, Victoria.

The Argus, Melbourne, Friday 17th March 1882, page 5.

“Two new stained-glass windows have been placed in the  choir of Christ Church, South Yarra. One representing SS, Peter and John converting converts at Samaris, is erected by some hundred and ten young people of the parish who were confirmed in the church last year. The other represents Our Saviour commissioning St. Peter, who kneels in front of the Twelve Apostles, to “Feed my Sheep.” Some sheep and lambs are depicted in the foreground. This window is placed in the church by the incumbent and his family in commemoration of his induction to the parish. Both windows are the work of Messrs. Ferguson and Urie, of this city.”

The two windows described in the article are depicted in the slideshow. See post 04-10-1881 for other Ferguson & Urie windows in the church.
