Dear friends and Parishioners,
Monday, May 18th, the church will be closed for 8 to 10 weeks to repair the 22,000 square feet of our plaster ceiling. It’s a delicate job. It involves extensive cleaning of the surface of the interior plaster. We see the exterior ornate plaster work. The artisans will be working behind what we see. After the surfaces are cleaned, the rods holding up the plaster will then be repaired. Finally, a foam will be sprayed over the plaster to strengthen and re-set it and the supporting rods. The artisans will be working in the attic of the church, the space between the cooper roof and the plaster ceiling where it can get as warm as 140 degrees in July and August. So, we want to finish this project as soon as we can.
Thank you for your tremendous support. We’re still accepting donations. The cost of this project is $478,000. We have funding to cover half of the project’s cost on hand. We will dip into the funds set aside for the vault project to make up the shortfall. We must triage these two projects – the ceiling takes priority at this time because it poses the most immediate danger.
Please keep in touch with us. You can follow the Sunday Liturgy on our website every Sunday. God bless. Be well. Stay safe.
Fr. John Kamas, SSS
