Week 7 Photo Update - Cathedral Restoration
Inspecting the stained glass windows in front of the church, while workers from Ribbeck Construction continue to work on the roofs.
These stained glass windows depict the 5 Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary. It's a pity we don't see the beauty of it from the inside; it's covered by the pipe organ. Hope they can do something about it.

Here's the vaulted ceiling above the side pews in the nave.
Here's the ceiling above the nave's main aisle.
Here's the ceiling where the nave and the transept intersect. This is where the symbols of the four evangelists (or the four living creatures) will go.

The words of the ancient Marian hymn
Tota Pulchra Es
will be repainted in gold letters, just as we discovered them when the acoustical tiles were removed.

Meanwhile, workers from Ribbeck Construction continue to work on the interior walls. Here, it shows them removing old plaster from the bell tower area right next to the choir loft.
Stay tuned for more updates!
We will have another open house after the 4:00 PM Mass on Saturday, March 2nd, and after the 7:30, 9:30 and 11:15 AM Masses on Sunday, March 3rd. Come and invite your friends and family!
