Windows depicting 6 of the 7 Works of Corporal Mercy (burial of the dead is missing) which for the better part of a century have hung in the Lower (chapel) Sacristy at St Clement’s, Philadelphia. These windows were removed early this week to be refurbished and installed in the Anchor Room, the most frequently used of our two Parish Halls. It’s wonderful that these beautiful windows, seldom seen except by clergy and altar servers, will be on display for all visitors, reminding us of our duties as Christians. Antique milk glass currently in the Anchor Room will be refitted for the sacristy. It is estimated that the windows should be in place within 3 to 4 weeks.

Just remember, you can do anything you set your mind to, but it takes action, perseverance, and facing your fears.

"That is part of the beauty of literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you’re not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong."
