Bp. Slattery thanks Manhattan Constr. for their part of the Renovation

In a recent Eastern Oklahoma Catholic article, Bishop Slattery thanked Manhattan Construction for doing their part in the renovation.

There are a few remaining projects, but they will have to wait for donations beyond the scope of the current pledge drive:

  • We will replace the temporary white carpet in sanctuary with marble that matches the rest of the sanctuary marble. The green carpet under the Bishop's cathedra will likely be replaced with green marble.
  • The frieze stencil that will run around the perimeter of the interior has yet to be painted.
  • The clock mechanism is largely intact, but it needs a variety of smaller machined parts to resume operation.
  • The electromagnetic strikers which sound the bronze chimes in the tower need to be replaced.
  • We need to install new protective shields over the stained glass windows.
  • We want to resurface and landscape the parking lot area across the street from the school. [The lot purchased as part of Fund for the Future has already been resurfaced and landscaped by the Diocese.]
