Stories in stained glass

From ...

Beautiful windows

As part of the Rochester River Romance Celebration, Holy Cross Church — 4492 Lake Ave. in the Charlotte area of Rochester and just over the O’Rorke Bridge from Irondequoit — is hosting a free tour of the 50 historic, pictorial stained glass windows there from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. this Saturday.

Each of the windows illustrates a biblical passage, and the tour was created by Maureen Staves, a longtime parishioner and member of the choir. Tour volunteers will share historical and biblical information as it relates to each window and answer any questions.

The windows are also featured in the book “Our Faith Illustrated in Stained Glass,” which will be sold at the event. See for more information.
