St. Agnes Church was designed in the neo-Gothic style by the noted Brooklyn church architect, Thomas Francis Houghton (1840-1913), a student and later partner of the famed 19th century architect, Patrick Charles Keely. Constructed between 1904 and 1913 it is the neighborhood’s dominant structure, featuring soaring towers and a façade of rugged Manhattan schist with limestone trim. The stained glass windows of St. Agnes were made in Munich by the renowned firm of Franz Zettler in 1904. Unique in many respects, they are also an unusual choice of theme for the nave of a church: while the windows of most churches use a variety of biblical themes, the eight windows in the nave portray only the life and martyrdom of the church’s patron, St. Agnes.

A special, pre-booked guided tour highlighting the stained glass windows will be offered.

Space is limited and advance registration is suggested.
