The Rutledge Window ~ The Road to Emmaus: This window on the west wall by the pulpit (pictured at left) is a memorial to James Rutledge, a lawyer, dedicated churchman, and mayor of Whitby. Rutledge served as Churchwarden several times in All Saints’ history, beginning in 1884. The window depicts Jesus, having joined the two disciples on the road to Emmaus, being entreated to stay the night, and rest. There are similarities in the style, energy and Scriptural theme between the Rutledge/Emmaus window and the Channen/Empty Tomb window, which is further along the west wall. During his Incumbency at All Saints, the Rev. Channen was known to base an Easter season homily on the Rutledge window. It is interesting and fitting that the Channen memorial window should complement the Rutledge memorial window in this way.
The Goode Window ~ “Come Unto Me/ Behold, I Knock”: This east-wall window (pictured at right) is in memory of Henry H. Goode, 1879–1966 and his wife Dana Louisa Goode, 1887–1969. Mr. Goode is remembered as a quiet man, who willingly served wherever needed. Mrs. Goode was once president of the Afternoon Guild and of the Chancel Guild. She often hosted Afternoon Tea Parties in her home to raise money to purchase altar linens. The window pairs two depictions of Christ—on one side, the humble Christ with outstretched arms, based on Matthew 11:28; and on the other, Christ the King with lantern in hand, as described in Revelation 3:20.
The Hawke Window (pictured below) is sometimes called the Ruby Window. The vivid red sets it apart from any of the others in the church. It is on the east side of the church ad when the morning sun shines through, the stained glass is remarkably bright and often paints the pews with rose-coloured patches. The window is in memory of Anthony Bewden Hawke, who was chief emigration agent for Upper Canada and Britain from 1835 onward. He died in Whitby in 1867. His initials are visible in the left window panel opposite a silhouette of an eagle, symbol of St John the Divine, in the right. In the circular window above is a verse from Proverbs: “The memory of the just is blessed.” Learn more about A.B. Hawke and the Ontario Emigrant Office.
