On Monday 21st December 2015, there was a carol service at St Joseph’s Church, Glasgow Road where the brand new windows were unveiled.
The stained glass windows facing out on to Glasgow Road are filled with beautiful colours and scenes depicting Blantyre’s rich mining heritage. In particular they focus on what Blantyre was like on 12th September 1877 when St Joseph’s was formed, and also that very sad day just over a month later in October, when so many Blantyre lives were lost in High Blantyre’s Dixons Colliery.
I’m sure you’ll agree, they look absolutely beautiful and very fitting for the stunning transformation this listed church has undergone in recent years.
