LANSING, MI (WLNS) – Lansing Catholic High School’s new chapel is looking a little more colorful.
That’s after Omnibus Studios installed several hundred handmade stained glass windows earlier this week.
“You’re almost at a loss for words right, just look, I mean just look, they’re so beautiful how can you not be inspired, how can you not be drawn in?” said Fr. Paul Erickson, Lansing Catholic Central.
“The techniques used in the windows are the same used in creating the great cathedrals of Europe,” said Richard Hanley, president, Omnibus Studios.
“The reason why we always have beauty, and why beauty was always associated with the church, all of it was meant to draw you in, right, you’re supposed to look at it and be inspired,” said Fr. Erickson.
“It’s like a fulfillment of all this work of research and designing. One of the biggest challenges is to give the whole project continuity. ‘Cause you have 18 different windows, and the windows all have to look like they go together as a set,” said Hanley.
“It is a little stressful because you’re holding panels in your hand that may represent a several hundred hours of work. But to see things in place and the most exciting thing is to have the client come in and be very excited with the work.”
“I mean it almost speaks for itself, right, these things are just so beautiful. Richard did such a superb job,” said Fr. Erickson.
