The windows, one on each wall of the church on the beach that was designed to represent a miter, the ceremonial headdress the bishop wears, were some of the few salvageable objects from the Catholic church.Saturday morning, about 50 men and women began assembling storage crates and taking down the 64 sections of stained glass that made up the four windows depicting the birth of Jesus, the Pentecost, the Assumption and the Resurrection.Working in groups of three on scissor lifts and booms, men carefully separated each section of stained glass, and then carried them to where storage boxes were built and lined with Styrofoam to protect the pieces.Paula Spears, who works in the parish office and organized the work detail, kept a careful log of each piece and the crates were marked so the windows can easily be reassembled when the time comes."This is the only thing left of the church that can be salvaged and the only thing that was left intact," Spears said. "It's incredible that the storm didn't break it up. It's incredible that the windows lived."
