Stained Glass Window Update!

When Bovard Studios sent the email with these photos, I wish you could have heard the Sisters' reactions.  We are SO PLEASED with this window.  Our Lady looks so beautiful and life like.  It's the face of Our Mother...how could we not rejoice!!  This round rose window will be seen as you enter the Chapel - holding pride of place which is fitting since Our Lady of Guadalupe is the patroness of Phoenix (and the Queen of our hearts).  Her consoling words wrap the window: AM I NOT HERE WHO AM YOUR MOTHER?  Bovard is now painting and leading this window!  Thank you Al and Donna Gillis, whose generosity brought this window into reality!



Below we see one of the Bovard employees hard at work cementing the St. Clare window.  Our thanks go out to the Kline Family for donating for this awesome window of our foundress! 
 Don't forget there are several giving opportunities for other windows!  We are heading out to the site to see the progress on Thursday - so I promise another update soon!
