More than 200 pieces of stained glass will be included in Saturday's sale.

The Diocese of Allentown is selling more than 200 pieces of stained glass.

The pieces — from 12 closed churches, two convents and a chapel — go on sale at 9 a.m. Saturday at St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church, 618 Fullerton Ave. in Whitehall Township

The stained glass sale, the diocese’s seventh, is very popular and previous sales have sold out in hours.

“People like being able to have a remembrance of the former churches,” said diocese spokesman Matt Kerr.

The ready-to-hang pieces range in size from 8-by-11 inches to 24-by-50 inches, and prices will run from $25 to $700. Several of the pieces are windows, without religious art, still in their wooden frames, the diocese said.

Proceeds go to the parishes into which the closed parishes were consolidated or merged. Philadelphia-based Beyer Studio is running the sale.

The stained glass pieces are from:

  • St. Joseph Convent, Ashland
  • St. Mauritius Church, Ashland
