Saint James the Less:
Stained Glass Windows

Saint James the Less Catholic Church is home to many beautiful stained glass windows.  The main windows depict the Mysteries of the Rosary (sans the Luminous).  The secondary windows depict the Apostles and the tertiary windows (in the choir loft) depict aspects of God.  There are also miscellaneous windows throughout the Church that have various themes, some with depictions and some only in colored glass.  The stained glass windows at Saint James were made by the Conrad Pickel Studios in Waukesha.

Computers with a slower connection (i.e. dial-up) may have a longer wait to see these pictures.  A broadband connection is recommended.
