Someone messaged me about getting some nice stained-glass shots on video, so I've sent her this link. While I was at it, I thought others might like a chance to see some VERY nice stained-glass that I video'd for the Immaculate Conception Commemorative DVD, last year (when the church was about to become the hub of the amalgamated parish of Our Lady of the Valley), so I'm reposting it.
(Original 'blurb' follows...)
This short video clip is from Fuzzy's Immaculate Conception Commemorative DVD Bonus Disk. It's the chapter which describes the stained-glass windows that were installed in 1959.
The Bonus Disk also has a chapter featuring highlights of the Final Mass (June 27th), together with the rest of the parishioner-interviews and a tribute to Father Eugene D. Honan.
The Main Disk features a history of IC parish, interviews with parishioners, Father CJ, Father Chris Malatesta, Father Gene, and nuns who taught at the IC and NDIC school, together with "Best Memories" and a look to the future of Our Lady of the Valley parish.
The 2-disk set (90 minutes and 120 minutes, respectively) can be ordered from Karen, at the Our Lady of the Valley Rectory, or direct from Fuzzy (413) 548-6804.
Extract duration: 10 minutes.

The Main Disk includes a history of the parish, interviews with parishioners and with Father CJ, Father Chris Malatesta, Father Gene, and two nuns who taught at the IC/NDIC school, together with a chapter on "Best Memories" and also a look to the future, as Our Lady of the Valley parish.
The Bonus Disk includes highlights of the Final Mass, a chapter on the stained-glass windows, a tribute to Father Gene, and the rest of the interviews.
