The striking rose window in the façade of Morristown’s Church of the Redeemer is dedicated as a memorial to those who returned from World War I.  Built in 1917, the pudding stone, Gothic Revival church was designed by the NY architectural firm, Parish & Schroeder. 

The stained glass rose window features elaborate stone tracery radiating from a central stone quatrefoil containing the Greek letters, Alpha and Omega.  Radiating spokes form the stems of elaborate leaves, each of which has a central stained glass shield. Between the spokes are six stained glass figures, possibly representing Apostles.  The beautiful window is placed within a circular quarry-faced stone surround.  The window was designed & fabricated by the English firm of Heaton, Butler & Bayne.
