The campaign to renovate St. Joseph Church

Stained glass windows at St. Joseph Church

Stained glass windows tell story of
St. Joseph and the Holy Family

The planned renovations for St. Joseph Church include beautiful stained glass windows that depict the life of our patron, St. Joseph, and the Holy Family. The windows will replace the deteriorating colored glass block windows originally installed in 1967.

One of many renovations to the sanctuary of the church, these new windows will be a distinguishing feature and a tribute to St. Joseph, the patron saint of the Universal Church. The first window design, "The Dream of St. Joseph," is shown at right.   

Additional window design themes will feature other events from the life of St. Joseph and the Holy Family, including the Nativity, the Presentation of Jesus, St. Joseph and the Blessed Mother Finding Jesus in the Temple, Jesus' Baptism, the Wedding at Cana, the Crucifixion, and the Resurrection of our Savior.

Other renovations to the sanctuary

In addition to these windows, the sanctuary renovations include new tile floors, new pews and kneelers, new lighting and a new sound system featuring a loop system for the hearing-impaired. A fire suppression/sprinkler system is also being incorporated to meet modern building codes.
