Church of the Holy Communion
Charleston, South Carolina
Devastated by Hurricane Hugo in 1989, the historic Anglo-Catholic Church of the Holy Communion was rebuilt by its members with plans for an enduring future and an eye to the traditions of the past.
Ronald Neill Dixon was commissioned to create new stained glass windows that would look as if they might have been installed when the parish was founded 130 years before.
Using a rich color palette and an intricate geometric background enhanced with traditional stenciling, he designed a regal and glorious Christ the King enthroned above the front altar, complemented by simpler geometric side windows topped with symbols of the four Gospels.
