After over a week of celebrating Mass in the church basement, we are excited to return back to the main body of the church - back to the familiar, back to the regular rhythm of prayer.
Our return has also been marked by a return of another kind. The sanctuary floor restoration is complete, and though the floor is looking like a million dollars, thankfully it didn't cost that much to restore it!
After decades of being hidden under tile and subsequent varieties of carpet, the original maple floor has re-emerged, well equipped to serve our parish as we forge ahead into our second century.
