Santa Lucia Vesper Tea
Sunday, December 14
A major renovation of the main entrance and chapel took place
this past winter and spring.
Ground was broken October 1, 2013 preparing the parking lot for the new portico.
Footings were poured mid-October and backfilled in anticipation of
blacktop by the end of October. In November work began on the new
elevator. Workers dug the hole for the shaft in the old youth room. Steel
girders for the portico were erected mid-November. In December contractors
began preparing the chapel for the new stained-glass windows which were
removed from behind the organ pipes. Because of the extreme cold this
winter and spring there have been several delays. The stained glass window was
installed in the chapel on March 12th with the chapel ready for use just
before Easter. New carpet was laid and a new chandelier installed also in
time for Easter. Flooring in the entry, steps, and downstairs hallway was
laid in early May. The new elevator has passed inspection and the portico
was completed on July 1, 2014, exactly nine months from when ground was
broken. Landscaping was installed just before the 4th of July, and the new
entry was open for church services July 6th. Below is a photo sequence of
