Composed of over 700,000 pieces of antique English glass and inspired by Sainte-Chapelle, the stained glass windows of the Saint James Chapel have been called "the crown jewel of Chicago's architecture." 


Founded by Chicagoans of many faiths in 1994, Friends of the Windows is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to the preservation and maintenance of this spectacular collection of stained glass. 



We invite you to join us for weekly tours.  Admission is always free.
