One of the most visible projects of the restoration work is the replacement of all the stained-glass windows in the church. The thick glass-and-concrete windows of the 1960’s renovation, which did not complement the architecture of the church and made the nave quite dark, are being replaced with traditional stained-glass images fashioned after the original 1872 windows.


The process began with the installation of the two sanctuary windows which present wonderful images of the Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception and St. Stanislaus.


In the nave, windows on the north wall honoring Our Lady of Good Help, Our Lady of Fatima, Our Lady of Lourdes and Our Lady of Guadalupe have been completed. On the south wall, windows honoring St. Therese of Lisieux, St. Benedict, St. Francis de Sales and St. Thomas Aquinas have also been installed.


In the choir loft, the rose window, depicting images of Our Lady – the Annunciation, Visitation, Nativity, Assumption and Crowning -- is also complete.


We look forward to the completion of the last four windows: St. Cecilia and St. Gregory (in the choir loft), St. John Vianney (by the north confessionals), and the Baptism of Christ (by the baptismal font).
