St Jane Frances de Chantal

The saint whom we celebrate today is particularly favoured in St Wilfrid's Church, since she has two windows in her honour. The first shows her as a married woman, the mother of four children:

The second depicts St Jane Frances in the habit of the Visitation Order, which she founded as a widow, with help from the Oratorian St Francis de Sales:
