Stained Glass Restoration Project Approved

The nine trustees of Trinity are responsible for the oversight of our six buildings and our property, and they do an amazing job of caring for our spaces so that we may worship and serve well. Recently, they had three companies evaluate the condition of our stained-glass windows and learned that over the next five years, some major work needs to be done. This will be both costly and time consuming.

To begin the work and address the highest priority windows, they have approved the restoration of the Sanctuary’s three balcony windows. The trustees have entered into an agreement with J. R. Lamb, a New Jersey company. The work will cost approximately $67,000.

Beginning the week after Easter, these windows will be removed and taken to Lamb’s restoration facility. The openings will be filled with wood and painted. The company will need three months to restore the windows and then they’ll reinstall them. Our worship will not be impeded by this project, other than the window spaces looking a bit strange.

We’re indebted to the trustees for their careful oversight of all of our property. In this case (and with future stained-glass projects), they’re ensuring that these beautiful and historic windows, placed in 1888, will inspire and uplift future generations of Trinity worshippers.

And a reminder about their funds. The only funds the trustees have for their use are monies that come from wills and bequests. This important project is an apt reminder of the importance of parishioners including Trinity in the last will and testament. Perhaps this will encourage you to take that step.
