WHERE DID THE WINDOWS GO?
Beautiful St. Anthony's Church in White River Junction
The stained glass windows of Saint Anthony's, the downtown White River Junction Catholic Church, are gone, replaced at nearly every port by plywood. But locals, deprived of their beauty over the long, Vermont winter, need only have faith. Like the coming of Spring, eventually, they'll be back.
The church's Window Project is underway. The windows have been removed and transported to a studio in Hampden, Massachusetts, where Stained Glass Resources will be restoring them to their original beauty. "They will be undergoing a revival for a new life," according to the Saint Anthony Church bulletin.
The restoration is part of the successful Capital Campaign held by the church a number of years ago, as well as more recent contributions dedicated to the window restoration.
