The Rededication of the True Vine takes place 
during the opening of the Holy Eucharist, 
Bishop Vicar of New York E Don Taylor, Celebrant

The procession stops at the True Vine window
Bishop
I will make your windows of agates, 
and all your borders of pleasant stones. 
You, O Lord, are the Vine, and we are the branches.

People 
Those who abide in you and bear much fruit, 
because apart from you we can do nothing.

Bishop 
Let us pray. O Lord God, the whole world is filled with the radiance of your glory: Accept our offering of this window which we now rededicate to you for the adornment of this place and the inspiration of your people. Grant that as the light shines through it in many colors, so our lives may show forth the beauty of your manifold gifts of grace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Restoration of this window was made possible by a grant from the New York Landmarks Conservancy Sacred Sites Program,through funds made available by the Tiffany & Co. Foundation.
