Stained glass pieces from closed diocesan churches and convents will be available for sale Saturday, Oct. 13 from 9 to 11 a.m. at St. Elizabeth of Hungary, 618 Fullerton Ave., Whitehall. (Parking lot is on Pershing Boulevard)
The Diocese is sponsoring the sale through Beyer Studio, Philadelphia. Proceeds from the sale will be 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 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 to $700 and are determined by uniqueness, condition and size.
