Stained glass windows in the nave of the church depict the lives of Jesuit saints. In the south transept, images depict Jesuit professors and SLU students. The stained glass above the high altar is the Holy Trinity surrounded by a choir of angels with a rainbow passing through. The two principal side altars were created by famed 19th century sculptor Joseph Sibbel. Facing the altar, to the left is a depiction of Mary, Comforter of the Afflicted. To the right is the death of St. Joseph. Above the main doors is a small stained glass windows showing the coat of arms of Pope Pius XI who was pope when the stained glass of the church was installed. As you leave the church, take note of SLU’s iconic fountain across the street to the east as well as the former Jesuit Hall to the north.
