All stained glass windows in the Church, designed by the Chicago firm of John J. Kinsella, were composed to enhance the prayer life of the people. However, they are also artistic compositions in and of themselves.

The four archangels (Uriel, Gabriel, Michael, and Raphael) set high in the apse of the church are particularly noteworthy because their style, composition, and color work together to evoke striking images depicting the apocryphal and biblical stories of the archangels in their ambassadorial roles.

The Eden Chapel
The Eden Chapel is a calming and elegant space located to the left of the main altar. The stained glass windows were designed by Faith Posey and constructed by Drehold Brothers. The windows take as their theme the simplicity, beauty and wonder of creation. When seen together as a single visual image, the windows depict the innocence of nature at peace and tranquility, uninhibited by any restrictive force. Human life, however, is not present in the work itself. As the small community gathers for weekday morning Mass and seasonal devotions in the Eden Chapel, the cycle of the created order is complete: man and nature in harmony with God.
