The Stained Glass Windows of St. Paul's

The beautiful stained glass windows on the north and south of the church were designed for St. Paul's by Franz Mayer and company in Munich, West Germany between 1953 and 1960.  There are 27 windows divided into 9 scenes depicting the life of Christ.   When the church burned in 1985, each window was reconstructed by Franz Mayer and company using the original "cartoons."  There are also three round stained glass windows and a series of stained glass in St. Mary's Chapel.
