Stained Glass Windows

The stained glass windows are the work of American Impressionist artist, Robert Reid. His extraordinary technique and detailed style covered the theme of the birth of Jesus in the Memorial Window utilizing color and shading from cool blues to warm earth tones through the nine clerestory windows from East to West. Seven of these windows are titled with one of the Beatitudes (or Blessed Be’s) which Jesus was teaching his Disciples as illuminated in the glorious twenty-four foot high Sermon on the Mount window located on the West wall.

One notable effect of the windows is the natural flesh quality in the figures. Two years were spent in their designing and execution. These stained glass windows were Reid’s most prized work, a masterpiece set and his only effort in stained glass.
