ORGANIZATION: Interfaith Center at the Presidio

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 3 people are interested

Starting August 28, 2022 and running through November 20, 2022 the Veterans Gallery in the Veterans Building will be exhibiting "Remembered Light Glass Fragments from World War II The McDonald Windows."

The 25 stained glass pieces of art were created from shards of broken stained-glass windows collected by Army Chaplain Rev. Frederick McDonald from bombed-out cathedrals, synagogues and chapels during World War II in Europe. Chaplain McDonald was attached to General Omar Bradley. He was dismayed by the destruction of sacred places and began saving small shards from the shattered stained-glass windows in hopes that one day they could serve as testament to the sacrifices made by so many.

The Gallery Volunteer will greet the public, track attendance hourly, be knowledgeable about the exhibit and keep a watchful eye on the visitors to the exhibit. The exhibit will have a mobile application with QR codes to guide the visitor through the exhibit. There will also be a self-playing video on a TV screen speaking about the exhibit.

P.O. Box 29055, san Francisco, CA 94129, US

Mission Statement

To welcome, serve, and celebrate the diverse spiritual wisdon and faith traditions of the Bay Area. To promote daily, enduring interfaith cooperation, to end religiously motivated violence, and to create cultures of peace, justice,a nd healing for the Earth and all living beings.

Description

In a world fractured by religious conflict, the Interfaith Center at the Presidio provides a vital haven for dialogue, prayer, and the building of friendships among people of all religions. It is fitting that the Interfaith Center's home is the Main Post Interfaith Chapel, originally bnuilt in 1931 to serve different faith traditions at the Presidio military base. Today, the Chapel needs a major facelift and expansion to best serve the interfaith center of tomorrow - a vibrant hub for programs, events, and activities.
