The work of beautifying the house of God never stops. At St. Francis de Sales Oratory in Sulphur, Louisiana, this means the installation of a new reredos, a work of art situated behind the main altar.

This reredos, measuring 24 feet tall, 18 feet wide, and 4 feet deep was a custom piece designed by Brother Bernard Marie Dunne and constructed by the monks of Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey in Oklahoma. Brother Bernard came to Sulphur to oversee the final installation in the church.

Many volunteers, both from and outside the Oratory, assisted with the monumental task which included extensive sanding, painting, and stenciling.
 
"I have loved, O Lord, the beauty of thy house; and the place where thy glory dwelleth." 
Psalm 25:8
