STAINED GLASS WINDOW RENOVATION

Miss me yet? You may have noted that our ten painted glass art deco windows have been removed and their rotting frames replaced. As part of the church restoration project, the windows are themselves being reworked with the central figures in each window being retained and the decoration around the figure being replaced. The draft proposal for the first window to be reworked is featured on the cover of this week’s bulletin. You might note that the decorative border, which was originally art deco, now matches the more classical style found on the St. Cecilia window in the choir loft, while the background of the scene is far more realistic and is reminiscent of the background of the windows in the apse, behind the altar. The hope is to create a stylistic unity with the new windows while maintaining the subject matter and ele- ments of the original windows. The first two windows are being worked on now and will be installed by the end of the year. They are being funded by a generous loan from the diocese. If you are interested in the project or know someone who would like to fund a window, large or small, please contact our Direct of Advancement, Mrs. Am- ber Hiske at ahiske@shgr.org for more information.

Catholic Inquiry/RCIA Classes at Sacred Heart

Sacred Heart will be providing the opportunity to learn more about the Catholic Christian Faith. Sessions are both for those seeking to grow in a better understanding of the Faith, and for those seeking to discern more completely entering into full communion with the Catholic Church. Sessions begin Monday, September 16th, 2024 at 7:00 p.m. in Cebelak Hall.

For further information/registration please contact Michael Tober at dre@shgr.org or call the parish office at 616-459-8362. Everyone is Welcome!

For our nation, that our leaders remember to exercise the authority God has entrusted them with humility, obedient to divine law, in order to secure for all men the blessings of the freedom that makes us truly free.
