‘Calling Window’ at Romsey Abbey
New Nightingale stained glass window
A beautiful new stained glass window will be dedicated in Romsey Abbey at the end of May 2020 to commemorate the calling by God of Florence Nightingale. Nightingale said that when she was seventeen “…God spoke to me and called me to His service” and this window remembers that experience.
It is designed by Sophie Hacker, an artist who specialises in Church Art, including stained glass windows. The window is being made in Wells and will be revealed in a dedication service at Romsey Abbey on 17 May 2020 after which it will be on display for all to enjoy.
