The inscription at the bottom of the window reads:
To the Glory of God and in Memory of the 106 persons who perished in the wreck of the S.S. Mohegan on the Manacle Rocks, October 14th. 1898, This Window was erected by the Atlantic Transport Company, Owners of the Vessel.

The window depicts on the left hand side, St. Keverne, and pictures Jesus calming the storm amidst frightened disciples. In the centre, Jesus holding the orb, and also Jesus meeting St. Peter as he walked on the water of the Sea of Galilee. On the right hand side, the child Jesus is being carried by St. Christopher, Patron Saint of Travellers, and St. Paul is shown being helped during the shipwreck which occurred on his journey to Rome.
