The restoration/repair of our windows is coming along very well. The dedicated and talented team of The Lambrecht Glass Studio in Omaha has done a terrific job taking care of our windows as they remove them and take them back to Omaha for repair and restoration. As of today we have restored of the 42 windows! Of those 30, 28 have been adopted, as well as 20 of the 25 segments of the large “Rose” window on the South side of the church. Thanks to the generous hearts of our parish family we have moved through the restoration and the end result is beautiful!!

Our Legacy moves on! Restoration of the stained glass windows is going well, one window at a time! Soon the East side of the church will be done. We now have 25 of the 42 windows fully adopted or partially adopted. Since we divided the large “Rose” window on the south side of the church we have had 6 pieces adopted--what a blessing! Call the Development Office for information on full or partial adoptions. Another small Phase of the HVAC system in school building was replaced over the Christmas break. There is now just one more phase to go and that project is finished.
We can happily report that we now have 21 windows fully adopted and 4 partially adopted! We also have 6 individual segments of the large “Rose” window that have been adopted! What a blessing these adoptions have been, as they have been above and beyond the campaign pledges! There are brochures on window adoption in the back entry of the church if you are interested. As we await for some warmer weather, the Lambrecht Glass Studio is working on the 8 windows they have taken, and with warmer weather, they will bring back the rest of the St. Ann window on the east side.
We are witnessing the benefits of our Legacy Campaign in many ways! The restoration of the stained glass windows has begun: our second set is in Omaha being worked on, soon to return! Over half of the windows have been adopted--what a blessing you all have been! We remind everyone that partial adoptions are available, just call the Development Office for information. Another way we cannot see, but certainly can feel the benefits is the replacement of the HVAC system in the school building!
The windows are back! A huge thanks to the Lambrecht Glass Studio for a great beginning to this wonderful project! The next set is in Omaha for yet another transformation!
Thanks to everyone for keeping up on your pledge payments!
That truly is what makes a campaign a success!
We are MOVING FORWARD!!
We got word on the stained glass windows this week! They are currently being re-leaded after a long wait for just the right replacement glass from a manufacturer. 125 year old glass is not easy to reproduce! There is a picture in the back of church!
A Building/Renovation Committee has been formed to move forward with the work to be done on the church and parish hall.
The committee members are: Fr. Randy Schon, Sister Rose Hacker, Alan Beste, Randy Schmitz, Pat Henkel, Charlie Kostelnick, Monica Pearson, Tom Venner, Kathy Becker, Betty Ann Schmitz and Chairperson - Dean Stephens.
To keep you informed of the work being done by this Committee, we are publishing the minutes of the meetings. Just "click" on the date to open a pdf file of the minutes.
