Stained Glass Windows

The stained glass windows at Christ Church Glendale are inspiring and beautiful. The Tiffany Studios designed the “Annunciation” window, located in the left transept of the main sanctuary. The “Good Shepherd” window in the rear of the church is a Victorian masterpiece. The aisle windows in the main church and in the small adjacent chapel were all designed by Charles Connick’s Boston studio and are some of the finest examples of stained glass in the country. The windows in the small chapel depict the life of Jesus and his ministry to children. In 1920, Connick added the impressive “Victory” window over the main altar. With a magnificent crucifix in its center, this window depicts saints who defended their faith in the Lord. The window was dedicated in thanksgiving for the safe return from World War I of all Glendale’s sons. The aisle windows, featuring the parables, were added during World War II, when lead was scarce. These windows are currently being cleaned and re-leaded to preserve them.
