Interior Features of Church of the Angels
The magnificent memorial window was designed and executed in London and is said to be one the finest examples of stained glass in America. The interior walls of the church are of red pressed brick, and the ceiling is of redwood, both of which have mellowed through the years to give a soft warmth.
The original pipe organ was built in 1889 at the Roosevelt Organ Works in New York City and is still in use today. Near the main entrance is a font of Mexican alabaster with a figure, carved from Italian marble, of a child angel kneeling at the base and holding a cross.
