CRAFTSMANSHIP AWARDS

The entire church was designed around nine 14-foot-high stained-glass windows, which were entrusted to the St. Louis Parish by Cardinal William Keeler. The windows are designed around three center medallions and are divided into three levels. The upper level portrays images from the Old Testament, the middle includes visuals of the life of Jesus Christ, and the lower portion of the window depicts events from the American history of the Catholic Church.
