Long Description:
From the Church website:

The stained glass windows of Sacred Heart Church, are truly extraordinary. They were specifically designed for this church and were manufactured by the Mayer Company in Munich, Germany, which was designated a "Pontifical Institute of Christian Art" by Pope Leo XII in 1892. The seventeen major windows of Sacred Heart Church were commissioned only eight years after that Papal designation. A single artist created the design for the windows. They are drawn in Renaissance single-point perspective, and are rendered in rich colors that artistically and symbolically enhance the content of each window scene.

10 of the beautiful windows are described in more detail on the website:
1. Jesus Saves Peter From Drowning
2. Jesus Gives Peter the Keys to the Kingdom
3. Jesus Blesses the Children
4. The Finding of Jesus in the Temple
5. Resurrection Window
6. Rose Window
7. Sacred Heart Appears to St. Margaret Mary
8. Death of Joseph
9. St. Ann and St. Joachim Present Mary in the Temple
10. St. Patrick Preaching in Ireland
