Help Restore our Stained Glass Windows

St. Mary’s priceless Tyrolean stained glass windows – installed 80 years ago in our Church – are in the process of much-needed renovation. Several windows were restored 10 years ago, and this project is targeted for completion this year. Thanks to all those who continue to support the maintenance and upkeep of our windows – and to those who contributed to Upon This Rock, as some of the funds raised through this initiative are earmarked for this purpose. Additional donations are needed to help offset costs. For instance, you can have all or a portion of a newly-renovated window named for your family or other significant persons, or have a window dedicated in someone’s memory. Donations are needed by Monday, October 2. To learn more about these opportunities, please contact Pastor Fr. Paul Steller at (716) 683-6445, ext. 17, or pauls@stmarysonthehill.org.
