  • Goodhue's Window

    September update on Goodhue's Window

    The last major stained glass window to be restored is the 1896 Adoration by Kings and Shepherds by Harry Eldredge Goodhue and manufactured in the studio of the firm Phipps, Slocum & Co. Like the architects' window, it constructed of layered or "plated" opalescent glass.

  • Mid-April 2014 Update

    The work of restoring the fabric of the Parish of All Saints' was broken into roughly two parts so that the first phase could commence before design work for the second phase was complete. Phase I, which is largely complete, addressed the building envelope, including the roof systems, the masonry, and the windows.

  • 20th Century Stair Hall History
    The five principal public floors floor of the parish are divided between the church and cloister wing (two floors) and the parish house (three floors). When we built the parish house in 1907, we insisted on providing as much space as possible on the land available, without overshadowing the church.

  • Mid-January 2014 Update

    Each week a short update is printed in the Sunday bulletin so that parishioners are apprised of the status of the building restoration work, what has been finished in the preceding week, what is still in progress, and what to expect in the coming week.

  • December has been revealing

    The scaffolding begins to give way

    The massive granite blocks of the All Saints' bell tower give an appearance of agelessness and permanency. It can seem as though the church will always stand ready to receive us in the time of our spiritual need, when we baptize a child, when we take a spouse, at the time of our funeral mass, and Sunday by Sunday throughout our lives.

  • The Actual Restoration Starts

    The very first work on the restoration was completed in November and December. Scaffolding was erected along the church's side aisles and the Lady Chapel, as well as by the tower and on the Lombard Street side of the building. The badly damaged slate on the aisle roofs and above the organ chamber were removed, as was the metal roof of the Lady Chapel.
