The church roof is tentatively scheduled for replacement starting in late March with work continuing until early July. Scaffolding will be erected around the exterior of the church and the work will proceed by sections of the roof, beginning with the west side of the church. The sequence of work for each roof section is removal of the old roof shingles, inspection and repair of the roof deck, repair of trim work and installation of the new roof.
Since there may be some debris inside the church during removal of the old roof it will be necessary that the pews, organ, and high altar are covered for protection. While we have contracted to have the organ covered, we need volunteers to care for the pews. The volunteer group, dubbed “The Holy Rollers”, will cover the pews after Sunday services and uncover the pews prior to the weekend services. If you would like to volunteer to help with either covering or uncovering pews, please call the office or contact Mark Claverie. A practice session for covering and uncovering the pews will be held on Saturday, March 12th at 9am.
Please note that due to the construction, regularly scheduled weekday worship services on Monday through Friday have been suspended beginning in March. (This does not effect services on Ash Wednesday and during Holy Week. Those worship services will carry on as planned.)
