St. Stephen Cathedral Mass
Blessed Sacrament Chapel Mass
Published on July 29th, 2011
I can’t count the number of times I have been asked, “When are they going to start working on the Church?” As I mentioned recently, the first step of this phase of our Cathedral Restoration and Renewal was the installation of the new sound system. Our committee is very pleased that we have received so many positive comments about this. Those of you who received the Cathedral E-Newsletter last week know that the renovation is underway. Mominee Studios, Inc. from Evansville has begun to restore our beautiful stained glass windows. They will make any necessary repairs to the windows and the frames, caulk and paint and install new protective coverings on the windows. Once all the interior work in the Church has been completed, they will return to clean the windows in the interior. So, the work has begun! At this time, I am not certain when the major interior work will commence, but we will make every effort to see that we are out of the Church for as brief a time as possible.
The tentative meeting with the folks from Granda that I mentioned in last week’s Perspective is definitely scheduled for this Thursday evening. Two people are coming from Spain and a third is coming from Chicago. I am eager to get that contract signed, so they can begin to work on the beautiful pieces of art which will adorn our Cathedral.
I will be in Memphis on Tuesday and Wednesday attending a regional meeting of tribunal personnel.
Love, Fr. John
