Back Bay church seeks to restore Tiffany window

The burglars who broke into the Church of the Covenant last month did not get away with much. But the damage had already been done.

The thieves entered the Back Bay church by breaking a Tiffany stained-glass window with a fire extinguisher, smashing its intricate, graceful design. Graced with the image of the disciple Dorcas, the window is one of more than 40 that circle the sanctuary, part of what the church calls the largest Tiffany church interior in the country, perhaps the world.
