Decades old stained glass window finds home in Wilmington church

Sunday, May 13th, 2012

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A stained glass window, decades in the making, has finally found its home in a Wilmington church.

The Church of the Servant, an Episcopal church, dedicated the “Healing Window” during a service Sunday morning. The window includes parts of a window made by artist Rowan LeCompte for an Episcopal church in Maryland in the 1950’s. After the church burned down, the window sat in a box for more than 40 years.

LeCompte along with Wilmington glass artist, Susan Tharin, added onto the window to help it fit into its new frame.

“When I stepped back and looked at the whole thing, it was just overwhelming to me,” Tharin says. “That he has had the faith in me to accomplish this and it’s just a relief to have it done and that everyone has been so

LeCompte has completed 42 stained glass windows for the National Cathedral in Washington D.C. Tharin says its an honor that he picked her to help with the project.
