The history of Pomerania in the hands of restorers from Taunusstein

A few weeks ago, in the tiny village of Kenz near Barth (in the county of West Pomerania Rügen), Derix Glasstudios Taunusstein began their work on restoring the medieval stained glass windows of the former pilgrims' church of St. Mary. The glazing involves six windows from the year 1430, which represent the country's most significant and largest collection of glass paintings from the Middle Ages. This important restoration project by Derix Glasstudios Taunusstein has attracted a lot of media attention and has therefore been monitored by various media representatives.

Franciscan Renewal Center – windows for the new church

The Franciscan Renewal Center – also known as the Casa – is a very lively Roman Catholic parish in the USA. It is located in Paradise Valley in Scottsdale, a district of Phoenix, Arizona. The centre adopts a religious and holistic approach, which it also expresses, for example, in its counselling of families or people in difficult situations in life. In recent years, the Casa has experienced significant growth, which means the old building has since become far too small to provide its many members with sufficient space. For this reason, the community decided to build a new one.
