Renovation activity in the church has begun!
The abatement of entryway is underway (the removal of any hazardous materials that will be disturbed in the construction process, and should be completed by the end of the week. Likewise, the preparation of the area behind the accordion wall downstairs for new columns that will support our new baptismal font is also underway.
Simultaneous to this, a group of us will be traveling to Vashon Island today to see the progress Julie Speidel is making on the baptismal font (see the photo below.)
You are all invited to a liturgy of the "secularization" of our current altar on Monday, August 15th at 6:00 PM. Bishop Cabell Tennis will be with us for this liturgy. If you wish to attend, please enter by the red office door (up the stairs off the parking lot). We will gather in the office area and enter the church by the door near the sacristy.
Also be aware that AA meets in the parish hall that same evening, so you may want to park somewhere other than the church lot to avoid being blocked in.
My best wishes to you during this time leading up the our celebration of the Feast of St. Mary the Virgin.
