Blessed Sacrament Church – the only Catholic Church in the Elmwood Village – will be hosting a free tour of the church’s 32 stained-glass windows on Sunday, November 14, from 11:30 am to 12:45 pm.
This is a wonderful opportunity to learn about the church’s prized possessions. Aside from learning about the stunning glasswork, mainly representative of the Austrian style, there will also be information shared pertaining to the 134 year-old history of the church. The tour will be led by church member Michael Pitek.
After the tour, which will also spotlight contemporary stained-glass and windows created in the style of Tiffany, attendees can elect to conduct a personal meditation on the windows’ scriptural context.
For those so inclined, there will be opportunities to partake in religious activities, as follows:
From 1:00-5:00 pm, the church will offer Eucharistic Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament concluded with Benediction at 5:00 pm. The faithful are asked to sign up for visitation/prayer times between 1:00 pm and 5:00 pm.
