Looking Heavenward: Saint Stephen's, Salvage & Igor

Last Tuesday the chancel window of Saint Stephen's - Salvage - fell asunder as the winds of Igor swept through much of Newfoundland - leaving gushing water and craters where roads once were. Houses, building all took a beating, and some gave way to fierce winds, and unrelenting rains that overflowed gullies, ponds, rivers, and streams eroding the toil and creative landscaping of individuals across the Island.

Today, I received two separate phone calls from individuals who desire to help us replace the leaded glass window of Saint Stephen's, Salvage. All who worshiped at this church looked through this window over the past century and a half.

Those who called, and there have been others since, will help a lot, but there is other work to be completed as well to the chancel as we hope to restore the chancel and replace a window through which we look heavenward.
