Garden Windows Restoration

Some of the most beautiful treasures of Christ Church Cathedral given to us by our forebears are the stained glass windows. And some of the oldest of these are the garden windows that grace the altar, providing flowers for worship every Sunday!

But these windows are in danger, and we need your help to save them. Over time, age and the weather have led to significant problems like cracking glass, softening lead, and bowing of the windows.

We have started a fund drive to raise the $134,717 needed to repair these 7 windows. That’s a big ask, but those who came before us did what they could for future generations; we now need to do the same.

As the Dean mentioned in the Annual Meeting, after the article in The Canticle highlighted this need, we received several significant contributions that brought us about two-thirds of the way to our goal. But we need your help to go the rest of the way to the goal.

Here’s how to contribute:

  • Cash contributions can be dropped into the plate at any of the Cathedral services, or brought to the church office. Please specify that your donation is for the Garden Windows Restoration project.
  • Contributions by check may also be placed in the plate or brought to the office, or mailed. Likewise, please specify that your donation is for the Garden Windows Restoration project.
  • To contribute online, click here. The link takes you directly to our donations page, and will automatically note that the donation is for the Garden Windows Restoration project.
  • If you’d like to make a pledge at this time, please contact Dean DuPlantier at or 504-895-6602.

Thank you for your contribution to this effort. We appreciate any and all donations, no matter the size of the gift. With your help, these glorious windows will continue to beautify our worship space for generations to come.
