Christendom’s new Christ the King Chapel received an exciting new addition this past week: the installation of eleven stained-glass windows, including the new Rose window and the restored Sacred Heart window from Christendom’s original Christ the King Chapel.
The artisans at Beyer Studio, who are restoring and designing all of the stained glass for the Chapel, installed the windows, which included four windows representing the Annunciation, Visitation, Assumption, and Coronation of Mary. The restored windows, made by the Tyrolese Glass Art Company of Innsbruck, Austria, all joined the restored Sacred Heart window in the Our Lady’s Chapel section of Christ the King Chapel, located directly behind the high altar of repose.
In addition to those windows, the new Rose window was installed as well. The window contains seven angels holding the images of the Liberal Arts, surrounding Our Lady, Seat of Wisdom.
Four other windows were also installed, honoring the saints Claude de la Colombiere, Margaret Mary Alacoque, Mother Teresa, Padre Pio, and the Martyrs of Otranto.
All of the beautiful new artwork brings Christ the King Chapel another step closer to completion. Already, 8,000 pieces of diamond shaped glass are installed in the Chapel, seen especially in the Chapel’s crossing tower. The striking ceiling of the crossing tower, featuring artwork from alumna Mandy Hain, is already complete, providing a stunning glimpse of the heavens and pointing toward Christ as the “center of the cosmos.”
