COLORADO---The church's new stained-glass windows, vibrant as jewels, illuminate the nine choirs of angels. Installed this spring, the windows are attracting attention from the larger community. They're the subject of the documentary "Angels Alleluia" that airs Sunday on Rocky Mountain PBS, and they've just won the 2014 award for religious art from the Forum on Religion, Art and Architecture, a branch of the American Institute of Architects. "Angels are constantly moving between heaven and Earth, and it's important for us to have the presence of angels be represented in this building," said Monsignor Edward Buelt, pastor of Our Lady of Loreto.[link]
