Rebuilt Church of the Redeemer Consecrated By Bishop Charles ASA Clough, June 23, 1958
The rector of the parish at that time, Fr. Ellsworth B. Stone, who served the parish longer than any other priest, formed a building committee which included the vestry, and immediate steps were taken to find an architect and contractor.
Architect Gale Henderson of St. Louis and contractor Kenneth Evans, also of St. Louis, were given the task of rebuilding the church in a Tudor-Gothic design, using all of the original walls.
Many stained glass windows were salvaged, others reconstructed, a new organ purchased, and new heating and air conditioning plant installed at a cost of well over $100,000.
On a beautiful Monday morning, June 23, 158, the Church of the Redeemer was consecrated by Bishop Charles Asa Clough, Bishop of Springfield.
