After   these   alterations,   the   church   could   accommodate   500,   and   the cost   of   the   additional   work   came   to   £3,000.   The   congregation   raised £2,000    of    this    sum.    It    is    interesting    to    note    that    donations    were made   at   the   time   by   Lord   Mount   Stephen,   founder   of   the   Canadian Pacific Railway, and by Lord Strathcona. A   memorial   window   and   Roll   of   Honour,   were   incorporated   after   the 1914-18   war   (This   was   updated   following   the   1939-45   hostilities).   A matching   window   depicting   Christ   as   the   Good   Shepherd      surmounts a Memorial Tablet to all deceased Parish Priests of St Thomas’. Four    further    stained    glass    windows    were    installed    in    the    1970s, through   the   generosity   of   other   benefactors.   These   depict   Our   Lady of   Aberdeen,   Saint   Margaret   of   Scotland,   Saint   Andrew   and   Saint John    Ogilvie,    whose    canonisation    was    by    then    imminent.    These windows   were   designed   and   made   by   Dom   Ninian   Sloane   in   the workshops   at   Pluscarden   Abbey   near   Elgin.   The   Christ   figure   which encloses   St   John   Ogilvie   suggests   a   priest   as   an   "Alter   Christus"   in the    performance    of    his    priestly    duties.    On    a    lighter    note,    the children    in    the    St    Margaret    window    were    based    on    drawings    of children   in   the   parish   at   that   time.   The   tartan   used   for   the   boy’s   kilt was   Lamont   tartan   This   was   a   tribute   to   Canon   Lamont,   the   then parish   priest.   It   might   also   be   noted   that   the   colours   of   the   glass   used   were   chosen   to   reflect the very different light of north and south aspects.
