Additional Information:
The parishioners wanted their new church to reflect their traditional spirit, traditional worship and traditional music.  Although the New Church is already considered a Houston landmark, it is the spiritual community that is most attracted to its architecture and windows.   
The windows are one of the main attractions of the New Church. Many people ask about the windows, usually in regard to their subject matter.  Others ask who made the windows, and how the subjects were chosen.  The scale of the windows is large; they are definitely one of the key decorative elements of the church’s interior.
