Information

Title

Henry J. Sweeney and All-Veterans Memorial Window (NH)

Date

dedicated February 18, 2018

Description

A memorial window acquired from an unknown Chicago church and installed at St. Raphael the Archangel Parish in Manchester in 2018 in honor of Henry J. Sweeney, a former parishioner who was the first Manchester soldier killed in World War I. The window was dedicated to Sweeney and all veterans on February 18, 2018, the hundredth anniversary of Sweeney's death in France in World War I.

The stained-glass window features an image of Christ standing over three servicemen — an aviator, soldier and a sailor — with a waving American flag and the words “For God and Country” atop an arch. The date of the window is unknown, but stylistically it appears to be post-World War II.
