Our 10-foot Cross will be anchored to the center pole on the rooftop. Framing in the Nave, the transepts and the ceiling of the Narthex continues. The duct work is progressing.READ MORE

We have mixed excitement. A lot of internal work continues, but it is limited to those of us who are allowed in the building. We will continue to post photos which will illustrate the work. A/C work along with framing continue.
The new crosses for the bell tower and the upper front (west end) of the building have arrived. We are waiting for the City to inspect and approve the flooring support so we can install the flooring and construct the roof of the bell tower on the ground before we use a crane to lift it. Then we can install the large cross on top of the roof.READ MORE
