Work on the stained glass windows continues these weeks. The central panels are now back in position. It is hoped that the work of conservation and restoration on the remaining panels will be completed by the end of the week and will be brought from the studio of Emerald Stained Glass. Full re-leading and sealing of all windows will then take place.  The final part of the work will be the re-leading of the glass panels of the main doors of the church and the windows in the family room.
