An impressive array of Tiffany stained glass and other religious art elements is showing at the Museum of Biblical Art in New York. To see it, you need to fly to the Big Apple before Jan. 20.
Or make it a lot easier on yourself and stay in Northern California, instead driving a short distance to enjoy the astonishing collection of 25 Louis Comfort Tiffany stained- glass windows that illuminate Saint Peter's Chapel on Mare Island.

There is a wedding at Saint Peter's Chapel almost every Saturday. So far, no same sex weddings have been held there yet but there have been requests.
Mare Island was a huge employer in that area until it closed. My dad worked as a machinist there as well... Shop 31!
Both my graddads worked at M.I. for years until theiir retirement, and my mother worked there for a short during WWII.
How beautiful! A few years ago, my cousins and I found a lovely little chapel out in the middle of nowhere on Lake George in upstate NY. I took a lot of pix of the beautiful stained glass windows. MOnths later, I saw a PBS documentary on the chapel’s Tiffany windows! The next summer we went back to take more in-depth photos but the chapel was locked up tight. We tried again this year and it was also locked. That little chapel is like a hidden jewel box hiding even more jewels inside. Makes me wonder how many other little unknown chapels were graced by Tiffany windows. Thanks for sharing.
We were impressed by the Tiffany windows at Blandford Church in Petersburg, Va. Each window is dedicated to one of the Confederate States. The Church is besides a cemetary.
Thanks for the link. I knew about Troy’s abundance of Tiffany windows. You can take a walking tour to see them if you’re up to it! Unfortunately, by the time I heard about it, I was no longer “up to it.”
St Michael’s Episcopal Church on Amsterdam Ave & 100 St in NYC.
There’s one in KS.
