A book by J.J. Mueller, S.J. & Thomas M. Rochford, S.J.
The stained glass windows of St. Francis Xavier (College) Church narrate an extraordinary story of community created by the twelve Jesuit saints whose lives the windows celebrate. These Jesuits–professors, pastors, missionaries, writers and administrators–lived in different eras but pursued a single mission that the College Church and Saint Louis University continue.
The renovation of the church in the 90s and the subsequent cleaning of the windows revealed details in the intricate stained glass that had been obscured for decades and are still difficult to interpret without the insight into the windows that this book provides.

NORMAN — When Father Thomas J. Boyer looks at the stained-glass windows recently installed at Saint Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church, he admits it’s hard to look away.
Earlier last week, William Frank and Aaron Frei, associates from Emil Frei Associates of St. Louis, Mo., were at the church to install the windows.
