Water damage forces repairs

In the past two years, rain water seeped through the arch in the apse of the Cathedral and damaged the gold paint. Although the new roof stopped the leaks, the damage is done. The gold paint on the underside of the arch has two major "bubbles." The damage is difficult to see from the pews [above], but it is quite visible from the other side [below].

We should see some scaffolding in the apse of the Cathedral by the end of this week. While it will take a large structure to reach the 76 foot ceiling, the scaffolding should not be as dominant as it was in 2008.
