History at the hospital, Restored windows from Mercy's old chapel on display (Americas)
Patron saints of the sick and suffering, depicted in a collection of restored stained-glass windows, will look over the Lundy Pavilion at Mercy Medical Center for the next year.
The 'A Light Within' exhibit that opened last week features 16 restored stained-glass windows from the hospital's old chapel, which was torn down after the 2008 flood.
The windows have been in storage since the early 1970s, when the completion of Mercy's new patient tower made the chapel built in 1948 less accessible. After the new chapel was built, the windows -- commissioned pieces of artwork from Daprato Rigali Studios in Chicago -- were no longer needed but were kept intact. 'Religious communities are very astute in keeping history,' said Sister Marilyn Ward, Mercy archivist and director of volunteer services.
