Stained glass has been known as preaching the Gospel so that it reaches the heart of the faithful through the eyes, rather than the ears—a visible reminder of an Invisible Light.
Thanks to the generous donation from a family wishing to remain anonymous, completion of the stained glass window installation throughout the church now appears to be closer than ever to reality. This ongoing process has been done in phases, beginning with the featured “Resurrection” stained glass above the altar, then stained glass installed in the Adoration Chapel, along the roofline, and other locations. Phase three will complete the process.
It is hoped that the final installation will take place in about 24 months, so there is much to do. Please look for more details about this effort in the bulletin and on the parish website in the weeks and months ahead.
Our former pastor and now Archbishop of Oklahoma City sends along the following note:
"Recently I learned that thanks to a generous donation, the completion of the process installing stained glass windows throughout Church of the Resurrection that began some 16 years ago during my time as your Pastor now appears to be coming to fruition. Congratulations! Some will recall that stained glass throughout the church was part of the dream and overall “master plan” at the time of construction. I still recall my tenure at Resurrection with great fondness and it is gratifying to see efforts that began so long ago coming to such a wonderful conclusion. It is a truly beautiful church!
I look forward to seeing the fruits of your wonderful efforts.
Please be assured of my prayers."
Most Reverend Paul S. Coakley
Archbishop of Oklahoma City
