Rich Cummings provided the following details regarding the new stained glass window.

  • The window was reinstalled August 20 and it took 11 hours.
  • The cost of the restoration was $38,500 and it took 14 week to complete.
  • The window was taken to the studio of Kelly Art Glass where it was taken apart pane by pane. Each pane was cleaned and the lead supports were resaudered.
  • This restoration was necessary due to the fact that the lead supports were failing, causing the support of the whole window to be placed on the bottom window panes which were cracking under the additional stress.
  • This restoration was made possible by a grant from the Pittsburgh History and Landmark Foundation and individual donors.

Thanks to all for making this possible.
