Installation of new pews and a new lighting system are well underway, at least at the end of this past week, renewing optimism that the OLW church repair project will meet its Easter Sunday deadline.
Although many of the finishing touches remain to be completed during the final two weeks of work, the major projects - especially installation of the new lighting system, installation of the “looping” sound system, and replacement of pews - are well underway.
Still to be done are installation of new carpeting, the kneelers and many finishing touches, which may be delayed until after Easter.
But the church itself is beginning to look as it will for the next generation and parishioners who have seen photos - or even had a peak inside the church - seem very pleased.
