St Mary's Cathedral Windows
Windows illuminate the glorious interior of our Mother Church, but after more than a 100 years of service they are in urgent need of restoration.
There are 39 majestic amber windows that require urgent repair and restoration. These magnificent and historic windows are broken, fragile and damaged by years of pollution and weather impact.
Each window, panel by panel, frame by frame, needs to be carefully dismantled, lowered to the ground, and then transferred to the restoration studio in the Southern Highland. Chief Restoration agent is Rick Allen of Heritage Glass, one of only two agents in Australia who specialise in nationally significant heritage buildings, will undertake the work.
For each window the entire process can take up to 8 weeks, weather permitting. For all 39 windows the entire project is expected to take five years, subject to sufficient funding.
Please donate $70 to restore a heritage, hand-crafted, amber glass tile for the Cathedral windows.
Or, if circumstances allow, St Mary's Cathedral will be blessed if you consider an exceptionally generous contribution of $3,778 for a large vertical section.
Pledge your family sponsorship for a full window. Your family name will be honoured in a commemorative plaque in the Cathedral.
