Rededicating the Stained Glass Windows
On Sunday, February 26, Saint Thomas celebrated the completion of the restoration of our stained glass windows. Julie Sloan, our stained glass window consultant, gave a presentation in the church on Sunday afternoon, which was followed by a special 4pm Evensong. The windows were rededicated during the service and Father Andrew Mead, Rector at the time of the start of the window restoration, delivered the sermon. Representatives of many of the ten studios responsible for the restoration and members of the committee who oversaw this project were special guests at Evensong.
On February 26 conservator Julie Sloan presented a lecture on the recently completed stained glass window restoration project. You can watch the slideshow and the audio accompanying each slide from the lecture above.
This video below details the restoration process, from start to finish, of one of our stained glass windows. The example used is an image depicting the Boy Jesus.
