He said: "We would like to invite visitors to come and view the newly colourful window.
"It is a commemoration to Lord Cadman who was the father of the oil industry."
The day will also tie in with a Cadman exhibition that features 33 photographs and a replica layout of a miner's kitchen.
Born in the village in 1877, Lord Cadman became inspector of mines for Staffordshire.
During the First World War he was pivotal in securing British fuel supplies, before being appointed chairman of the Anglo-Persian Oil Company.
