Did you know that, in addition to the many stained glass windows here created by Emil Frei, Sr., another stained glass master put his mark on our Church as well? Charles Jay Connick, of Boston, created the two-panel windows here in the transept and a majority of the short three-panel windows along each side of the Nave. Connick created many notable stained glass windows, including the Rose windows of the cathedrals of St. Patrick and St. John the Divine in NYC, Princeton University Chapel, American Church in Paris, and Calvary Episcopal Church in Pittsburgh. Upon his death in 1945, the NY Times reported Connick was considered the world’s greatest contemporary craftsman in stained glass.

JTM WOMEN'S MINISTRY FUND
By now, you've heard the devastating news about Jan Torrisi-Mokwa. Jan was invaluable in enhancing the Women's Ministry at The Church of St. Michael & St. George, as well as founding the ECW Steering Council by lovingly guiding the group through a process that brought our value and mission statements to fruition. One of the ways that her memory will be honored is by establishing a fund to support the Women's Retreats that Jan so dearly loved. The money will be used to pay for retreat leaders as well as provide scholarships for attendees. If you would like to contribute, please make your check payable to CSMSG and note "JTM Women's Ministry Fund" in the memo. Please contact Laurie Brown at Laurie@csmsg.org if you have any questions.
