The art glass illuminating the interior of St. Boniface Church hold  historic, architectural, and artistic significance as the only known complete collection of Ludwig von Gerichten windows still in existence.   von Gerichten was the premier creator of Munich-style art glass that was used extensively in the thousands of church that sprung up in the rapidly growing  Western United States around the turn of the 20th Century.   The windows have served nobly for 108 years without any repair or preservation.  All 41 are badly in need of conservation and restoration.
