Stained Glass Windows of St. John the Baptist

St. John the Baptist is located at the bottom of the hill from St. Joseph's Seminary, on Yonkers Ave. at the crossroads of Yonkers. I already took pictures of the exterior of the church (it was this blog's first post). The church was dedicated in the late 1920's, but was finished abruptly because of the Great Depression. It has a huge parish registry and offers many masses throughout the week. Under the leadership of Msgr. J. Christopher Maloney, St. John's is still thriving and is a favorite place for weddings. It also has a newly restored pipe organ which is the biggest in Yonkers. Here are pictures of the stained glass windows, which are highly regarded.
