Te Deum Window Update 7/6

I hope you have had an opportunity to see our new south wall! If not, plan to take some time to relax on the Capitol lawn and look across at our new brick wall. Look toward the peak of the roof and you will see the new limestone trefoil! It is quite stunning and adds […]

Te Deum Window Update 6/14

Dear All,      It seems we have hit the ‘dog days’ of August in early June!  My heart goes out to our incredible masons who stand on the ‘tower’ and lay brick after brick on the exterior sanctuary wall.  If you have driven by lately, you will note that they have bricked to a point […]

Te Deum Window Update 5/25

Dear All, Today’s wet weather has not slowed things down a bit here at St. Paul’s. The masons have completed the middle wall, also known as the cmu, and are currently taking a break while others roll on it, from top to bottom, a tar substance that gives the cinder blocks extra protection against dampness. […]

Te Deum Window Update 5/17

It has been a while since I last sent an update. Things are changing from one moment to the next regarding the window and wall. The good news is that the steel frame (also known as the “buck”) was installed this week. It was a challenge for the welders to line everything up and weld […]

Now for the building update.  The remaining […]

Te Deum Window Update 4/11

Wow!  Theresa and I just finished watching the construction crew remove the intricate upper frames of the Te Deum window.  It was almost like watching a high wire act as we held our breath when the fork lift picked up the entire left section and gently brought it down to the ground.  It was a strange […]

Te Deum Window Update 3/29

Time for our weekly update!  As I have mentioned before, things are pretty fluid here and what I may have shared with you this past Sunday has now changed.  The stained glass specialist our insurance agent sent to us from New Jersey, was here this past Monday.  His words of wisdom have changed a few of […]

Te Deum Window Update 3/22

My hope is that the sunshine is warming up the masons who are high on a lift taking down our church wall brick-by-brick.  And I do mean one brick at a time.  This is a slow and intentional process and I give thanks for those who are willing to stand on a metal platform 100 […]
