There are six windows in the church that are original Tiffany Studios windows - plus six which were made using Tiffany glass.  The latter windows - including the choir window which is shown on this page - were made by the Payne-Spiers Studios of Paterson, New Jersey, in the late 1940's and early 1950's through the efforts of Mr. Thomas Hildreth who was able to have enough of the original Tiffany Glass set aside for the church to be used when the opportunity for new window construction arose.
