Jewels of Light

Saturday, November 9, 2019 | 3:00pm

In this introduction to the stained glass windows, learn about the tales they tell, from God’s creation of the universe to stories from American history to the Last Judgment. While walking through the Cathedral, you will witness the stylistic evolution of Cathedral windows from 1911 to the 2000’s and learn about the creation process, which combines artistry and technical skill. In this tour, you will also discover how to “read” a window, decoding symbols that add meaning and depth to each lancet. This tour is ADA accessible.

Jewels Extravaganza!
Experience the “jewels” of the Cathedral by joining one or all of our stained glass tours in one extraordinary day. Jewels of Light is one of the Cathedral’s most popular tours and is offered twice at 9:30am and 3pm. Begin the day with a before hours’ tour to catch the morning light or enjoy the mid-afternoon light sparkle – both times offer the opportunity of seeing stained glass rainbows streaming across the Nave (weather and sun permitting). At 11 am and 1 pm, limited space is available for two different behind-the-scenes experiences that take you up close to different stained glass windows.
