Women Pioneers of VictoriaPrint Page Print this page

A stained glass window erected by descendants of pioneer families commemorates pioneer women of Victoria.

Archbishop Head dedicated a beautiful stained-glass window in St James’s Old Cathedral last night in memory of the women pioneers of Victoria. The window which represents St. Hilda Abbess of Whitby was the gift of descendants of pioneer families and it was designed by Mrs Napier Waller. The sanctuary was floodlit last night, creating a wonderful effect and assisting in the service were Archdeacon Lamble and the Rev A.F. Falconer. Names of the pioneers to whom the window is erected are to be inscribed in a special book of remembrance to be kept by the Cathedral.
