From the St. Louis Review

Here is the information poster anonymous mentioned earlier. Have your paper copy available when you access and you can get to the link below. If not, call the folks at their office at 314-792-7500 and they will look up your information during business hours for you, since no online application exists to do that 24/7.

I guess this was the Review the dog ate. Here's the text of note from that article:

"Because St. Aloysius Gonzaga and St. Boniface were sold to commercial buyers, the archdiocese has removed a number of the buildings’ sacred objects. The archdiocese contracted with Emil Frei Associates to removed the stained glass windows at St. Boniface and will document and store them, Richter said. The bells have been removed and stored as well. "We hope to use the windows in another church building in the near future," Richter said.

The windows in St. Aloysius Gonzaga were taken out, as were the bells. "The bells went to the Poor Clares in South County. As for the windows, the people whose families originally donated them have been in contact Father Vincent Bommarito at St. Ambrose Parish about them," Richter said.

"None of the sacred objects, none of the things that made our Catholic churches Catholic, are ever left behind," he said. "The archdiocesan Reclamations Office spearheads that effort."
