Today started the Pew Project as part of the ongoing Restoration Project for St. Joseph Church. It's a lovely old church, built in 1947 in the English Gothic style. But lovely old churches mean expensive upkeep and so the pews are being restored, and the tiled floors upon which they sit replaced - a lot of the tiles had holes worn into them from years of the kneeler stop hitting it in the same place.
Later this week, rented chairs are coming to act as a temporary fix while all of the pews are restored.
Kudos to Our Beloved Pastor who wrangled a deal with the pew restoration company to not only restore the pews, but also replace the kneelers and the Missal holders on the backs of the pews.
Hopefully, all will be completed by early July. Keep us in your prayers.
