Stained-glass windows —spiritual beauty in lyric color. The major artists/craftsmen of the early twentieth century are represented in
the Cathedral —Louis Millet, Bancel La Farge, Charles Connick, Chester Weston, Conrad Pickél. The windows they created, expressing timeless themes and images, were meant to last for centuries if cared for properly. From the generous support of previous CHF donors, the South and North Rose Windows shine brilliantly and sit solidly in new lead frameworks nearly one century after their original installation.
Now our attention turns to Connick’s windows above the confessionals —six windows that share a theme of forgiveness. In the ambulatory, La Farge’s windows in the Shrines of Nations feature saints’ representative of Minnesota’s diverse culture. And the earliest windows in the Cathedral, Millet’s windows installed in the chapels of St. Peter, St. Joseph, and the Blessed Virgin Mary, tell stories from the Gospel and church history. Please join us in restoring these masterpieces.
