Stain Glass Window of St. Charles has started.

The diocese has accepted the project proposal; demolition and framing of the new window has begun.

Next step: Fabrication and installation of window frames and clear 1” outside windows. (Taking approximately 3 months)


The replacement stained glass window (a depiction of St. Charles Borromeo teaching children* [as seen below]) will be a beautiful representation of our patron saint. The process for creating and implementing the new stained glass window will take approximately 10 - 12 months. We are expecting the installation to take place in April or May of 2020.

* St. Charles wrote the first Catechism of the Catholic Church.

The exterior windows will be 1” thermal pane, which would help on savings of cooling and heating costs for the church. In the course of 10 years, the window will pay for itself!

Memorials and dedications are most welcome.

Please place the name of the memorial or dedication on your envelope. A plaque will be made with the memorial/dedication and placed in an area close to the window.

Checks may be made out to St. Charles Borromeo Church with “
Special Projects Fund or Memorial Window” on the memo line.

Mail your donation to St. Charles Borromeo Church, PO Box 128, Whitefish, MT 59937.
