Join the Preservation Resource Center’s Stained Glass Art in Sacred Places Committee for their fall 2013 Stained Glass Tour. Presentations at each of the houses of worship on the tour will focus on the art and architecture.
The first stop on the tour is St. Patrick’s Catholic Church on Camp Street, the second Catholic Church founded in New Orleans. The stained glass of the church includes traditional windows portraying saints and popular New Testament scenes. Most of the glass in the church probably dates to the first quarter of the 20th century.
The next stop is Temple Sinai on St. Charles Avenue. Although Temple Sinai is the oldest Reform Congregation in the state, dating to 1870, the building dates to 1928. The windows portray symbols cherished in the Jewish faith.
The final stop on the tour is St. Charles Presbyterian Church. The present building at the corner of State Street and St. Charles Avenue dates to 1928. The tour will focus on the renovated chapel that was completed last year. In it, stained glass artist Steve Wilson of Baton Rouge has woven together plants and animals native to Louisiana. He will talk about the windows during the tour.
