IT'S FEELS A LITTLE ODD! BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT THE SANCTUARY SEEMS STRANGELY EMPTY.

Finally all the scaffolding that has dominated the spaces of the Oratory for many months is completely gone. No regrets though. Last minute work on the painting of the pillars is proceeding and soon work on the wainscoting around the perimeter of the church and the laying of the oak flooring will begin.

THE GOLD LEAFING ON THE FINAL PILLARS IS ALMOST COMPLETE.

Northeast Painting Company, the painting contractor is in the process of finishing the tedious job of applying gold leaf on the remaining surfaces to be completed. Also, the final coats of paint on the pillars will be done shortly.



...OTHER WORK IS GETTING DONE...

The floor is covered with large stacks of the oak flooring panels. Once the wainscoting in complete then the flooring can be laid, stained and sealed.

VESTIBULE RESTROOM FRAMING IS PROCEEDING.

Also, the church office and sacristy has now been sheet-rocked. The next steps there will be hanging of the suspended ceiling grid and painting.
