We’ve had a salvaged pulpit in storage for more than fifteen years. It was time to bring it out!
The excavators (TTD EarthTech) are back to finish up the site work — and what a beautiful job they are doing!
Our beautiful gates have turned out to be solid brass — and, once we get the ancient lacquer off, they will polish up nicely. The right gate (as one faces the altar) is memorialized, but the left gate is available.
The project is almost finished — as far as our general contractor is concerned! There are so many little details: fire alarm system, back-up generator, staining and finishing the rest of the wood trim, installing and sanding the altar rail (then staining and oiling), door and window hardware, key cylinders, floor caulking, ceiling re-painting (we has some plaster cracking that had to be repaired), light fixtures, red paint on the arch, walk-ways, laying down loam, seeding, etc., etc. – and all the final inspections!
It will still be some time before we’re able to have Mass (see the starred items on the memorialization list), but we’re making excellent progress. For pictures, please keep reading. Read more…
