New windows reflecting ‘heavenly Denver’ to be blessed

Sixteen new stained glass windows being installed at Our Lady of Loreto Church in Foxfield will be blessed at 11 a.m. Mass March 9.

“They’re stunning,” pastor Msgr. Edward Buelt said of the pieces of contemporary theological art.

The new windows, designed by Littleton born and reared artist Scott Parsons and fabricated at the Derix Glass Studios in Taunnesstein, Germany, were designed to complement the natural elements of stone and wood in the 2003 Romanesque style church.

They depict a variety of theological imagery including: five circular dome windows portraying the heavenly Jerusalem as revealed in the Book of Revelation, namely the Lamb of God seated on his throne and the tree of life; one circular window that represents the marriage of the Lamb of God to “the heavenly Denver”; and 10 rectangular windows that illustrate the nine ranks of angels and St. Michael the Archangel.

Derix is installing the windows along with a local team. The installation is expected to be completed later this week. All are invited to the church at 18000 E. Arapahoe Road for the blessing. For more information, visit www.OurLadyofLoreto.org or call 303-766-3800.
