Bishop Barbara Harris honored

A stained glass window honoring The Rt. Rev. Barbara Harris was dedicated on Sunday, June 24. The first woman to be consecrated a bishop in the Episcopal Church and Anglican Communion, the Rt. Rev. Barbara Harris, was present at the Church of St. Alban the Martyr, Queens, NY, to bless two window panels. The other one depicts Absalom Jones, the first African American ordained priest in The Episcopal Church.

Bishop Harris is depicted wearing her consecration vestments designed and made by Challwood Studios. According to partner Paul Challenor, “I worked with the stained glass maker in selecting from consecration photos and in capturing the effect of the woman’s weave Kente cloth on her vestments.”
