Stained Glass Window Restoration Update
The restoration work on several stained glass windows is underway by AG Stained Glass in Victoria. The windows on the north wall, chapel, tower, and vestry were removed in early January so that they could be cleaned and damaged or mis-coloured glass could be replaced. This first phase of work should be completed and the windows reinstalled at the end of February.
