Mansfield’s remarkable collection of historic church buildings echo a time when religious belief and community worship found expression in brick, glass, and stone.

One of those remarkable structures is home to a congregation celebrating its 175th anniversary this year, and you are invited to learn about an art exhibit unlike others.

The stained glass windows at Grace Episcopal Church are the focus of a talk this Sunday afternoon. OSU Mansfield Professor Danny Butts will talk about the history of the windows and the “saints” which can be found in them.

The first two stained glass windows were installed in the east and west ends of the church, which was dedicated on November 17, 1907.

The remaining windows held amber colored glass until January 1915, after the having been delayed in shipping due to WWl. They grace a church designed in the traditional Gothic style by local architect Vernon Redding and were crafted in Germany.

A preview of the windows can be accessed here.

The talk begins at 1 PM at Grace Church, 41 Bowman Street. There is no charge to attend.
