Restoration to Begin on Calvary's Rose Window; Stained Glass Expert to Speak at Preservation Forum Mar. 15

"Beatitudes", the rose window at Calvary Episcopal Church originally produced by Louis Comfort Tiffany, is set to be restored beginning this Spring.
SUMMIT, NJ -  Restoration is set to begin on Calvary Episcopal Church's rose window, one of the few such works ever produced by Louis Comfort Tiffany. Installed in 1896, The "Beatitudes" Rose Window resides on the rear wall of the Church's nave. 

Ravaged by the elements for 119 years, the rare treasure will be brought back to its original glory by renowned stained glass expert Art Femenella and his team. To inaugurate the restoration work, Calvary will hold a Preservation Forum March 15 with Femenella, who will speak about the history of the window and the restoration process.  All community members are welcome to attend.

Femenella started working with stained glass in 1968.  He now divides his time between supervising major restoration projects, consulting, lecturing, and writing for numerous national magazines. His projects have included works by Louis Comfort Tiffany, John LaFarge, Frank Lloyd Wright, Maitland Armstrong, and other artists of equal importance.

In 1854, Calvary Church began as the first organized religious body in Summit.  The original building was a mission church, seated only 75 people, and was constructed of wood and painted brown. Today, the Church occupies a structure referred to as "an architectural marvel" by the New York Times.

Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.


Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
