Manhattan College – Lasallian Stained Glass Windows

These stained glass windows of John Baptist de La Salle, originally created in 1900, were moved to the chapel at Manhattan College in 2016.

The windows guide viewers as they move through the Chapel to visualize moments in the Saint’s life — from his childhood in Reims, to the vow he took with his Brothers, to his death in Rouen and his glorification in heaven, where he is welcomed by Christ and acknowledged as a great teacher by Saint Ignatius Loyola.

They may be seen on the Manhattan College website (LINK) where there is also an online tour via the internet (LINK)

Below in the tab “WINDOWS” are large files that show each of the windows in detail.

There is also a video that gives the history, process, and results of a project to relocate the Lasallian stained glass windows from the former Novitiate building in Barrytown, NY, to the chapel at Manhattan College in the Bronx. It is a good discussion starter on the topic of alumni engagement and Lasallian art. (13 Minutes)

You can either clink the link below or watch it under the tab below “Show the Video.”

Years of Yearning

Years of Yearning is Brother Mel’s memoir of the Saint Mary’s he found (1969 – 1997) and the jumbled, tangled tapestry that took many years to unravel and reweave, a section at a time.  His philosophical vision had to adapt to a new academic world without sacrificing the liberal arts and Catholic principles he believed were crucial to the future.  The New Century Committee then wrote the courageous language of the College Mission Statement, the continuing standard bearer of the College’s educational philosophy today.
