In an exciting acquisition, Manhattan College was entrusted with a collection of exquisite stained glass windows originally installed at the Brothers’ Novitiate in Pocantico Hills, N.Y., and moved to the chapel at the Brothers’ Novitiate in Barrytown, N.Y., in 1930. The windows portray scenes from the life of Saint John Baptist de La Salle, from his childhood in Reims to his death and subsequent glorification in heaven.
This historic collection is considered the most beautiful and complete artistic reflection in stained glass of De La Salle’s life and his work with the Brothers of the Christian Schools. Properly preserved, the windows will carry the Lasallian spirit forward and underscore the College’s mission.
