As Father had mentioned a couple of weeks ago, we have been busy constructing a new ambo for the Church. This new ambo will now house the sound equipment and have extra space for additional liturgical books, a larger area for the readings. There will be a new pull-out drawer to accommodate the children when they read at the Children’s Mass during the school year. The new ambo is made out of oak and should last for many years to come.
In addition we are also in the process of remodeling the altar fronts. Our next project will be the smaller altar, where the height will be adjusted somewhat, and the whole front design will be updated. It has served us well for many years, but it is beginning to show its wear. In the next couple of weeks this smaller altar will be our focus. You will see a change to the front design, but at the same time we will keep the foundation of the altar itself. The altar will match the ambo in color and in type of wood.
We are also in the process of redoing the main altar. This altar has shown its wear over the last few years and the veneer is starting to chip away and the top candle shelf is splitting apart. The same type of design will be used on both altars. As we remodel them we will be using the main foundation of both altars. They will be updated with oak fronts and trim. The tops of both altars and the candle stand top will all be addressed with a new quartz-like product that will not only look very nice, but will hold up for many years to come, and is in the marble look. Enjoy watching as this process takes place. All of this was made possible with two parishioner donations.
