The Windows of Saint Mary of the Immaculate Conception Church
North Attleborough, Massachusetts
Designed and Produced by Arnold & Locke, Brooklyn, New York
Installed 1904 - 1905
The windows of Saint Mary Church are made in opalescent and antique glasses. The figures were first painted on the antique glass, and then burned or fired to make the colors permanent. In order to get the proper depth of color and shading, they were then plated with opalescent glass, in some places two or three thicknesses deep. Most of the glass for these windows was made especially for them. In some places, favrile and drapery glasses were used to get the desired effects.

Three windows

The oldest of the windows are the three center or chancel windows: from left to right, the Annunciation, the Immaculate Conception, and the Nativity. These three prominent windows recall three great events in the life of Mary. The center window, the Immaculate Conception is based on the famous painting of the same name by the artist Murillo. This trio was purchased by a donation given in 1892 by the Barrett Family, longtime members of Saint Mary Parish.
