Stained Glass Window Installation:
A three-panel stained glass window, boxed and lit, entitled "God the Father", will be installed above St Catherine’s Altar and unveiled at a Mass celebrating the Feast of St Catherine of Alexandria on Friday, 25th November, at 7.00pm. All are welcome. The window is signed ‘Harry Clarke Stain Glass Ltd’. Explained Fr Colm Ó Gallchóir PP: "Harry Clarke (1889-1931) was Ireland’s greatest stained-glass artist. The Harry Clarke Studios remained in business until 1973. In the 1960s the ‘God the Father’ window was designed for a church in New Zealand but never delivered for whatever reason. It had been on display at All Hallows College, Dublin, and was purchased at public auction by Eugene Collins, Downings, on behalf of Killybegs Parish in July 2015. This striking, cosmic figure of God the Father will be a worthy addition to our church, complementing the Holy Family Painting above Our Lady’s Altar. Two other stained glass windows will be unveiled in the Adoration Room that same evening."
