As of March 25th:
The ceiling, lighting and icons are done! The walls and the frames for the stained glass windows are being painted and the hanging lanterns from ND have been hung at the choir loft area. The "dance floor" and the scaffolding are down!
Now comes the major cleaning of the floor area.
You can peak at the work being done from the front entrance but please stay behind the ropes!

Happy 5th Birthday OLV Parish!
Wow! What a wonderful event celebrating the first 5 years of this Parish (July 1, 2010 to 2015).
