They were nice enough to let me hang out with them for a while. I was a captive audience :-). By lunch time they had the first two windows out. Here are a few pictures.
They removed each window by panels. I believe there are about 4 or 5 panels per window. The work is easier now than it was years ago. A hammer and chisel used to be used all the way around to remove the grout/putty. These days a handy dandy power tool makes the job a lot faster and easier.
Our windows were protected on the outside by two layers of clear storm windows.
Once the windows are removed they will be transported to Kasmark & Marshall's studio where they will repair and restore them. The work is expected to be complete by the beginning of September.
Bishop Jack Croneberger, Assistant Bishop of the Diocese of Bethlehem, will be here on Sunday September 27 to bless and rededicate the restored windows. A celebration / luncheon will be held following the service.

I'd like to pass along this note from Father Major about the Restore the Glory Campaign...
Thanks to the support and offerings of so many Prince of Peace parishioners and friends the restoration of the main stained-glass windows of the church will begin very soon! The work by the Kasmark and Marshall Company is tentatively scheduled to be completed by September. The $10,000 restoration project would simply not be possible without the donations recently offered during the Restore the Glory Campaign. Thank you to all who contributed to this necessary project and to all parishioners and friends who faithfully support and care for the mission and preservation and growth of Prince of Peace Church.
