Painting the walls behind St. Joseph's Altar

The painters are applying purple paint to the wall behind the altar of Saint Joseph. The color comes from the St. Joseph window high above the altar of St. Mary.

In the window, St. Joseph is holding an Easter Lily. The lily will appear as a stencil, or motif, over the purple paint. Among the fleurs-de-lis will be the tools of a carpenter: a hammer, nails, and a carpenter's square.

Update: The painting is almost done. Here is what the altar looks like with the new paint behind it and without the plastic covering over it.
