The stained glass in the church is also needs conservation. The glass from the Sacred Heart and Lady Chapels underwent renovation in mid 2004.
Mayer of Munich
The stained glass was created by the world famous Mayer of Munich – this firm is also noted for having created the dramatic stained glass window at the back of Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome. The firm has existed for centuries.
St Mungo’s Cathedral
The old Cathedral in Glasgow had some of the finest stained glass in the world – also made by Mayer. After the Reformation it was removed from the windows and stored in crates. To this day the glass lies in crates in the old Cathedral, unused and unseen.
Pictures in stained glass
In our Church the Joyful and the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary are depicted in the windows at the Sacred Heart side and the Lady Chapel side respectively.
In the Sacred Heart Chapel there is also a window Depicting Saint Margaret Mary receiving her vision of the Sacred Heart.
The Lady Chapel and Sacred Heart altars are of a similar style though the side panels of the Lady Chapel are more decorative.
The Sacred Heart Chapel at the left side of the Church has, like the Lady Chapel, been recently renovated. The skylight which had been covered to stop water ingress, has been completely repaired. Now light shines into the chapel once again and makes it bright and welcoming.
