History: 
Dévoilement de l'écriteau et le dévoilement de la première commande d'art public, exécutée par Jordi Bonet, né du Mont Saint-Hilaire, au Québec, le 15 Octobre 1972. Sur les lieux depuis.
Note(s): 

The seven tongued Sculptured Pentecostal Flame Symbol, denoting “renewal and vitality” was adopted by the Session for the bold new concept of St. Andrew’s Place. The twelve foot diameter casting of the sculptured symbol is located over the main entrance to the complex.

 

In keeping with the traditions of Church buildings, the Narthex is dominated by the dramatic and symbolically rich entrance to the Sanctuary. The outer surfaces of the three entrance doors bear a “triptych” of cast aluminum, deep relief, sculptured panels. Like the magnificent Flame Sculpture, these three panels [of a total of eight] were commissioned from Jordi Bonet, and whose symbolism is based on the “I AM” statements of St. John’s Gospel.

 

The inner panels of the Sanctuary doors are equally dramatic. Using themes from the Gospels, the artist has expressed them as striking contemporary statements of ancient symbols of the beliefs and tenets of the Christian Faith.

 

  “LOVE” on the right door, using a richly textured abstraction of the central Christian motif.

 

At a level about midway between the Foyer and the second floor is the entrance door to a small, non-denomination Chapel which is always open for personal meditation and for small group use.

 

Known as the Peace Chapel, its entrance door bears the last two of the sculptured panels by Jordi Bonet. The outer panel declares “PEACE” in text of twelve of the many languages spoken in the multi-cultural Sudbury community. The inner panel depicts “Providence” as the “Hand of Gold” holding persons securely in life.
