About the Artists
President and Owner of Studio One Glass Art Ltd., Vancouver, BC http://www.studiooneglass.com/
Yves Trudeau was born in Montreal, Quebec in 1951. His love of design and color led him to study architecture, photography, stained glass design and glass fusion. Of his work, Yves says “I consider myself primarily an architectural glass designer. My approach has been to respond to each commission on an individual basis, creating in conjunction with the environment, my client’s taste and interests, and my continued exploration of the medium”.
Co-creator of St. Andrew’s-Wesley sculpted glass panels.
Jose Ventura was born in San Pedro Nonualco, El Salvador in 1955. He attended art school, earning a diploma in architectural drawing before joining the National Museum of Anthropology as a graphic designer and model maker. Political violence forced Jose to flee his country in 1980. He worked and studies glass work techniques in Mexico, Canada and France before settling in Canada in 1992.
These panels were dedicated to the Glory of God and to honor the Rev. Dr. R.M. (Max) Warne and Berna Warne by their good friend Mary Wattum.

The Little Children and Jesus
People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them: “Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not for of such is the Kingdom of God. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the Kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” Mark 10
The Parable of the Lost Son
The son said to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.: But the father said o his servants, “Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.” And they began to be merry Luke 15
The Baptism of Jesus
At that time, Jesus came to Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. As Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven being torn open and the spirit descending on Him like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love, with you I am well pleased.” Mark 1
The Boy Jesus at the Temple
After three days they found him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking questions. When his parents saw him, they were astonished. His mother said to him, “Son, why have you treated us like this? Your father and I have been anxiously searching for you.” “Why were you searching for me?” he asked. “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?” Luck 2
Jesus Washes his Disciple’s Feet
It was just before the Passover Feast. Jesus knew that the time had come for him to leave this world and go to his Father. The evening meal was being served…so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them. Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet you should also wash one another’s feet. I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master, nor is the messenger greater than the one who sent him. John 13
At the Home of Martha and Mary
As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me! “Martha, Martha” the Lord answered. “You are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better and it will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10
Fishers of Men
And walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon who was called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea,for they were fishermen. And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Matthew 4
