Throughout the mid to late 1990’s, Mrs. Candy Reed’s junior religion classes would provide an annual Christmas display to the community through a stained glass window project.
Using a pattern that spelled out a Christmas themed picture or phrase, the classes would construct the display by hanging colored tissue paper on Mrs. Reed’s classroom windows. With lights left on in her room, once night fell, the picture would be illuminated and would look similar to a stained glass window. As her classroom faced 9th Street, everyone passing the school was treated to the Christmas display.
It was a beautiful project that each junior class enjoyed working on as a way to contemplate the birth of Christ during the Advent season as well as a way to share the school’s Christmas joy with the school community and the city.
