Masonry-Siding Reconstruction Work Continues!

Masonry-Siding Reconstruction:  Please note that we have begun to repair the masonry siding of the church that is most in need. The elevator entrance door and the main front door have been fenced off to facilitate these repairs. Parishioners can enter the vestibule and nave of the church from the north side entrance closest to the front stairs.  

Many thanks to all of our Wider Reach Campaign donors for making these repairs possible. This project is expected to be completed by the end of November 2021.
