This retirement home in Scarborough provides long term care and apartment accommodations for seniors. The residence complex has developed into a strong community offering support, activities and worship to its residents. The chapel, which is part of the complex, has active members who love and care for their community.
Over the years many of the residents wanted to give back to their neighborhood and decided to revamp their chapel. On the first occasion EGD was contracted at Wexford Retirement, one of the residents decided to commission a stained glass window for the chapel. Eve Guinan was commissioned to design a nativity scene stained glass window. It was installed it into the chapel.
Being impressed with Eve Guinan’s design, another resident commissioned new work, a different style of stained glass window for another part of the chapel. The chapel and its surrounding residents are incredibly pleased with the new additions to their community.
