Stained glass at St. Joseph's Chapel (3 of 3)

This is the third part of a series on the stained-glass windows in the Saint Joseph's College chapel.

The windows pictured below may look like a rose window that belongs in the front of the chapel, but it is not. It is the skylight window over the altar. That explains the dark blotches. They are dirt or debris, and it is probably pretty difficult to clean the window. It is a beautiful window, but one that most people never see.
The window below is in the place where a rose window would be, over the main entrance.
 
The three windows below are all in the entrance or vestibule. The one below is over the east door.
 
The window below is over the main door.
 
This and another almost identical window are on either side of the main door in the vestibule.
 

(Update: I did not realize that I left this post unfinished when it was first visible. It is more or less complete now.)
