Roofing Update

Our roofers are braving the 100 degree temperatures to continue installing our copper roof.

They are getting ready to cut each copper shingle into the proper shape so it can be placed around the window. [See photo on right.]

The crane cannot reach the back side of the spires. After the fronts are complete, the crane will move to the sides of the church so the crane can complete the roof. We had originally thought that the workers were going to dismantle the stone Romanesque arch between the church and school. We have learned that the crane can enter that space from the back parking lot behind the school. This will save the arch, but may require the workers to move the concrete cinder block wall.
