St. John’s Stained Glass Windows

St. John’s has forty-four beautiful, hand-made stained glass windows throughout the Sanctuary, Gregory Hall, Hallway and Chapel. Over the years, the exposure to the elements and natural causes has impacted every window to some degree with some in actual need of glass replacement due to cracks and bulging.

St. John’s solicited a quotation from one of the finest restoration companies with over 120 years of experience, Associated Crafts – Willet Hauser Architectural Glass, Inc. to do a thorough examination of each window and provide a recommended course of action and projected Project cost.

We have now received that quotation and the Project total cost is $91,292. To provide a perspective, Associated Crafts estimates that the replacement value for the windows would be $448,515.

As part of the repair/replacement of the windows, Associated Crafts would also be adding a protective covering on each window to provide additional protection and enjoyment for many years to come. Shown below are two examples of the work that would be performed.

Sanctuary (8. ft x 8. ft)

  • The existing protective covering will be removed.
  • Recement the stained glass window on the exterior surface.
  • Scrape loose paint and apply both a primer coat and a finish coat of rust inhibiting paint.
  • The Klear-Flo™ protective covering system will be installed utilizing a special perimeter frame.
  • Glazing bars will be bent to follow the major lines of the framing, thus preserving the exterior appearance of the architecture.
  • This window shall be covered with our exclusive Klear-Flo® protective covering system utilizing 1/4” Acrylic.

Sanctuary (2.5 ft x 7. ft)

  • The existing protective covering will be removed.
  • Reduce bulged section(s): 1
  • Install new steel structural support brace: 1
  • Perform general services.
  • Recement the stained glass window on the exterior surface.
  • Scrape loose paint and apply both a primer coat and a finish coat of rust inhibiting paint.
  • The Klear-Flo™ protective covering system will be installed utilizing a special perimeter frame.
  • This window shall be covered with our exclusive Klear-Flo® protective covering system utilizing 1/4” Acrylic.

Praise be to God for providing a warm day yesterday and a West wind to accompany it!The Chapel ramp is now de-iced and ready for use - the stairs leading to the chapel entrance on Page St. are not open.The church is at about 50 degrees, which is better than it was, but still encourages warm clothing.Blessings,Richard+ ...

Dearest Saints of St. John's,The good news is that our plumbers worked this week on the replacement of the 70-year-old gas line that runs beside Gregory Hall and into the Stringer Garden - they dug the trench for the new pipe.We all know what happened on Tuesday-Thursday. Today they came out and did some more work, but they are by no means complete.Maybe next week. Pray that the weather is good and that we can get the installation done and inspection scheduled quickly.So, this Sunday, we will definitely not have heat again - dress warmly.Also, because of the sleet, the Chapel Entrance and the Gregory Hall Entrance are not usable. They are on the North side of the building and are in the shade all day long. And, the plumbers have blocked off the Gregory Hall Entrance because of their work.Fr. Foster's Church History Class will begin this Sunday in the Guild Parlor during the Sunday School Hour.The kids may have their Sunday School in The Children's Chapel as it is the only classroom in the building that is not heated by a gas furnace.I look forward to seeing you as I have recovered from my illness.God bless you for your faithfulness,Richard+ ...
