Major Renovations Set for Stained Glass Windows at St. Joseph’s

St. Joseph’s has announced that it is in-store for some much needed renovations on their beautiful and historic stained glass windows.

As stained glass windows are not the focus they once use to be the church has found a contractor who has completed numerous projects involving a very unique and specific set of skills, with Conrad Schmitt Studio in New Berlin, Wisconsin.

This will not be Conrad Schmitt’s first project in the area as they previously completed restoration work at the Ferdinand Monastery and Saint Meinrad.

The St. Joseph Parish has been engaged in assessing the historic churches needs for the past 3 years in respect to the condition of the windows and other aging surfaces, leading it to make the stained glass windows a top priority.

The windows in St. Joseph’s church have been the focal point of some much coveted history of the Jasper area and with the windows approaching 120 years of service they are well past their life expectancy of 100 years.

Tomorrow, Tuesday May 23 contractors will be at the church to select and remove one half of a narrow lancet window along the nave of the church. Restoration will be preformed on this one removed window establishing a base for a time line for the following removal and restoration of an extended project.

Funding for this project is largely from the Stewards of God’s Grace Capital Campaign which was orchestrated in cooperation with the Diocese of Evansville.
