Windows of Faith

The well-known stained glass windows of St. Patrick Church in Bisbee AZ were installed during the church's construction in 1915-1917.  Crafted by the Emil Frei Art Glass Co. in St. Louis, MO, the windows are a stunning example of the Munich Pictorial style of window that Emil Frei, the studio's founder, was known for. 

Windows of Faith is a 60 page book featuring large color photographs of each of the windows in the church, giving the reader an opportunity to view and study the fine details often missed during a brief visit to the church. In addition to descriptions of the symbolism found in the glass designs,  interesting bits of history are also provided about the people who are memorialized in the inscriptions at the base of each window. Social justice reflections by Pope Francis, Archbishop Oscar Romero, and other Catholic theologians parallel many of the lessons of the window scenes.

Taking diligent care of our historic church is not done without significant cost. As the Centennial of St. Patrick Church approaches, restoration work on the stained glass windows is one of the upcoming needed projects.   Proceeds from the sale of this book will help support those efforts.
