Stained Glass Window Restoration

Protective glass and better ventilation for our priceless Tiffany and other stained glass windows was installed May 8 – 10, 2017 on the north (Washington Street) side of the church. Lamb Studios’ craftsmen worked diligently Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday to complete this project, which was supported by last August’s Building Fund party.

The narthex was the site of the work table, stencil-making, glass cutting, taping and staging. Scaffolding was erected above the front steps, and craftsmen Jay and Joseph executed the project with great care and expertise.

Many thanks to all who supported last August’s fundraiser, and who continue to support Bethesda’s Capital Campaign. And thanks be to God for the gift of craftsmanship and artistry that has enhanced our worship here for nearly two centuries.

Building Committee News

Bonacio Construction, Inc. has been engaged as the parish’s construction manager for development of the New Parish House and Community Center.  This decision was made by the Vestry, on recommendation of the Building Committee.  Along with building many successful commercial projects, Bonacio has successfully assisted local non-profits, including Universal Preservation Hall, Caffe Lena, and AIM Services with great success.  We are delighted to have them join forces with Bethesda.

Bonacio will work closely with the Building Committee and our architects to assure that we keep costs within budget, without compromising quality.  If cost estimating, leasing and financial milestones are attained in the coming weeks, we may hope for groundbreaking this year.

To follow this process, please keep an eye on the Bethesda Facebook page and on the parish website.  Questions may be directed to Senior Warden Darren Miller, Gordon Boyd, Building Committee chair, or to any member of the Vestry.
