More than 200 pieces of stained glass from 12 closed diocesan churches, two convents and a chapel will be available for sale Saturday, October 14 from 9 to 11 AM at St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church, 618 Fullerton Avenue in Whitehall. (Parking lot is on Pershing Boulevard)
The diocese is sponsoring the sale through Beyer Studio, Philadelphia. Proceeds from the sales are returned to the parishes into which the closed parishes were consolidated or merged.
The glass pieces for sale will range in size from as small as 8 by 11 inches to as large as 24 by 50 inches, and many sizes in between. Many of the stained glass panels are sized to fit in a normal sized residential window with attached hanger so they can easily be hung. Several of the pieces are windows, without religious art, still in their wooden frames making a nice architectural salvage piece for a home or office.
Prices will range from $25 - $700 and are determined by uniqueness, condition, and size.
