Stained Glass Windows


St. Paul tells us that in Christ we are a new creation.  It is wonderfully appropriate that the ten east windows were installed in time for Easter Day.  It is anticipated that the ten west windows will be installed about the end of April.  Once all twenty windows are installed, St. James will provide parishioners and visitors alike with an inspiring mural on the theme of creation.  The mural will provide the opportunity for prayerful contemplation on the nature of creation from perspectives that are biblical, Christian, contemporary.  The relationship of faith to creation is one of the major areas of study and interest in contemporary spirituality.  Indeed, the Episcopal (Anglican) Church in the United States has recently published a catechism on the subject of faith and creation.  Our project is innovative.  The windows are of a very high quality and do justice to St. James as a place of worship.  St. James continues to take its place as a church that is a patron to the arts.  I noticed many people exploring the windows during Holy Week.  Please take time to invite your friends to come and see as well.  Questions about the windows, including interest in sponsoring remaining windows in whole or in part, may be addressed to any member of the Stained Glass Window Committee.
