Window dedicated for Ioco on Sunday

A Port Moody heritage site has a new window to the world thanks to a local stained-glass artist and a Port Moody parishioner who commissioned the art to remember her late husband and son.

Mary Anne Cooper approached Evergreen Glass Studios artist Beth Thompson to design the window, titled “Sacred Tree,” for Ioco United Church.

On Sunday, the window will be officially dedicated as both a commemorative artwork and as a way to preserve the living character of the historic church on the old Port Moody town site.

“Glass is ever-moving, reflecting light and constantly changing,” Thompson explained in a press release.

The window will be dedicated at a ceremony involving the artist, church pastor and Cooper family at 9:45 Sunday morning at the church.
