A Gem in Geneva – Part III

September 22nd, 2012, Promulgated by Bernie

Part I

Part II

Here I share with you the stained glass windows of St. Stephen’s Church in Geneva, New York. The most interesting of these beautiful windows is the large one that rises above the narthex and main doors. The subject is the Jesse Tree. My camera is just not sophisticated enough to do it justice from below so you will have to travel to Geneva to really appreciate it.

(you will definitely want to click on the pictures to see sharper images)

    Am I reading that church sign correctly that they have daily confessions? Wow. I don’t think I’ve ever run into that in my numerous travels. Good on them!

    On second look, it looks like I am wrong. The space between the words is meant for times, so the “Daily” is for daily Mass and the Confessions I guess is for the usual Saturday afternoon.

    I believe they do offer confession prior to Daily Mass (M-F)

    Bernie or anybody – Do you know what type of organ they have at St. Stephen’s? It looks ripe for a nice 45-rank pipe organ.

    I’m sorry, Choir, but I don’t know.
