More than 200 pieces of stained glass from 12 closed churches, two convents and a chapel in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Allentown will be available for sale from 9 to 11 a.m. Oct. 14 at St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church, 618 Fullerton Ave. The parking lot for the site is on Pershing Boulevard. The diocese, according to a press release, is sponsoring the sale through Beyer Studio, Philadelphia. Proceeds from the sales will be returned to the parishes into which the closed parishes were consolidated or merged. The glass pieces for sale will range in size from 8 by 11 inches to 24 by 50 inches. Many of the stained-glass panels are sized to fit in a normal-sized residential window with attached hanger so they can easily be hung. Several of the pieces are windows, without religious art, still in their wooden frames. Prices will range from $25 to $700 and are determined by uniqueness, condition and size, according to the release. The stained-glass pieces were created from stained-glass windows that were part of: St. Joseph Convent and St. Mauritius Church, Ashland; St. Stanislaus Church, Bethlehem; Ss. Cyril and Methodius Church, Coaldale; St. Anthony of Padua Church, Cumbola; St. Joseph Church, Frackville; St. Joseph Church, Girardville; Our Lady of Good Counsel Church, Gordon; St. Kieran Church, Heckscherville; Missionaries of Charity Convent, Mahanoy City; St. Kunegunda Church, McAdoo; Immaculate Heart of Mary Chapel, Middleport; Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church, Minersville; Sacred Heart Church, Nesquehoning; and St. George Church, Shenandoah. For more information, call Matt Kerr at 610-871-5200, Ext. 2265.
