Oswego, IL – Have you ever admired the stained-glass windows at the Church of the Good Shepherd United Methodist in Oswego and wondered about their origins? The church’s Historical Committee, comprising Pam Roberts, Barb Wood, Janet Bornancin, and Mary Ann Stees, embarked on a quest to uncover these stories.

According to Pastor Steve Good, the team leveraged congregational and community resources to create a book detailing the windows’ histories. This initiative aims to satisfy the curiosity of others fascinated by these works of art.

The public is invited to a special presentation and luncheon on Sunday, March 3, at noon, highlighting the book’s revelations. The event starts in the sanctuary, followed by a luncheon in Fellowship Hall. 

Interested attendees are requested to RSVP via the signup sheet in the Gathering Room or by emailing the Church Office. Post-event, the book will be available for $15. To ensure affordability and sustainability for future orders, the committee is accepting only cash or check payments.
