February 17, 2013 . . . . . . . . Church Renovation Open House,    All parishioners were invited to an Open House of the Church Renovation Project today between 2 and 4 pm to view the progress that has been done on the church.  Members of the  Renovation Committee were on hand to show everyone the progress and to answer any questions some may have had.   Photos were taken of the Open House.   Entering the Narthex from the west door the 1st 6 photos were of the Narthex and the basement under the Narthex.   Both the Narthex and basement have the rooms established and the drywall put on.   Entering the church proper revealed a large turnout to view the progress so far on the renovation.   Many viewed the large framed  photo of what the church will look like when the work is complete.    The gold leaf design is being put on the ceiling.   The main altar has been raised and the steps to it are built.
