We are excited to announce the beginning of the painting of the Church here at the end of the month that should be done by Christmas. It is being done by Ellison Painting, who painted the church 30 years ago. The gold and the murals are in keeping with the early tradition of the Church when the Church was first built. On the red around the Church will be the Litany of the Holy Cross and in the arch above the altar will be the words “Behold the Wood of the Cross” in Latin. The crown of thorns will be in the circle and angels holding the glorious Holy Cross of Christ will be in the middle of the dome. A large rending will soon be put up in the back of Church.
We will remain in the Church for Masses during the time of painting and we will be able to see the progress as the weeks come along.
Along with all this, the projects continue as we are in the process of raising money to restore and refinish the pews which is a project over $100,000. Any donations are appreciated. To help fund the restoration of the pews, since we will be getting new kneelers since the old kneelers are heavy and broken, we will be taking the old kneelers that have been in the Church since 1910 and we will be using the wood from them to make beautiful crucifixes, crosses, and ornaments, that people can place in their homes as they donate to the restoration of the pews. More details to come on this.
It is an exciting time for our parish and God is doing good things. It is the Lord who builds the house!
