UPDATE ON PACKER MEMORIAL CHURCH
Dear Brides and Grooms:
Lehigh makes necessary repairs and improvements to buildings and grounds during the summer months in preparation for the upcoming academic year. This site will be updated as we receive information regarding projects planned for areas directly around Packer Memorial Church.
Historical architects will be working to restore the stained glass windows of Packer Memorial Church over the next several years. In 2014, work was completed on the South transept section and moved East into the altar area. Continuation of project resumed in May 2015 focusing on all the main altar windows and was completed in late August 2015. In May of 2016, restoration work commenced with the North transept section and West toward the tower (the side of the church parallel to Packer Avenue). The project involved scaffolding on both the exterior and interior of the church. Scaffolding inside the church was draped with matching fabric. Work on this section was completed mid-November 2016. Tower restorations were completed in the Spring of 2018.
UPDATED: March 19, 2019
FUTURE: 2019 Restorations: Construction scaffold on the front exterior of the church is slated for early June 2019 through Thanksgiving. Image depicts area to be restored.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
