The four leaded glass sconces, located on the church's east wall set in between the Five Scourges windows, were designed by Howard Van Doren Shaw and fabricated by Willy H. Lau. They are unusual in that each sconce has four light bulbs positioned in front of, rather than behind, the large leaded glass panels. Years of exposure to the light bulbs' heat had softened the lead and caused the panels to deflect to the point that they were in danger of breaking apart.
In January 2016, Peter Janko of Lumenelle removed the fixtures and flattened the panels, repaired broken pieces of glass, stabilized the lead caming, and completely rewirde the sconces. LED bulbs which simulate the appearance of historic carbon filament bulbs, but do not give off the heat of incandescent bulbs, now illuminate the sconces.
