There continues to be questions about what is going on in church with the scaffolding and well as particulars about the scope of the work. Below is a brief summary:

1. The sanctuary is being redecorated/repainted. The goal is to restore the dome to the way it was prior to the 1979 painting. This means the primary color will be blue with scroll work.
2. The angels will remain as you see them with some cleaning and touch-up work.
3. The project will take about 8 weeks and the goal is to be finished around December 1st.
4. The project is being funded by money left to Holy Cross in a Will Bequest.
5. Additional lighting, new sanctuary furniture and some repair work on the organ will also be done as budget allows.
