The sanctuary windows comprise five two-light windows. The subjects are the Annunciation, the Adoration of the Magi, the Crucifixion, the three women at the empty tomb, and the risen Christ meeting Mary Magdalene in the garden. In this window, Christ greets Mary Magdalene, who kneels in the right-hand light. An angel is depicted above, and there are roundels of the prophets Daniel and Malachi in roundels below.
