Stained Glass Windows

Bovard Studios, in Iowa, has been hard at work on some of our stained glass windows - completed some and working on the drawings for others.  Below you will get a glimpse of them.  WOW.  So lovely!

As donors come forward for each window, they are sent into production.  There are still many windows that are waiting for donors to purchase them.  If you are interested, please get into contact with Sr. Marie Andre who will be happy to fill you in on all the details.  More to come on the windows soon.

Joe sent an update a few days back.  We will be going to the land again on Saturday - so look for another photo update soon.  Enjoy Joe's news: "Last Saturday, the framers really knocked it out of the park by framing the exterior walls of the Mass Choir, the sacristies, confessionals, parlor, restrooms and priest's vestry.  That was awesome.  It really opens up the job for many other trades this week including the electrician, plumber and HVAC.

On Monday the framer began laying out the arches that will surround the sanctuary, mass choir and adoration chapel.  They have committed to complete the arches and the interior column framing by the end of this week.  Monday morning also welcomed back the masons as they begin to close in the east end of the Chapel which will define the loggia and most importantly to Sister Andre and all the Sisters I'm sure, the adoration Chapel.  They hope to be complete a week from Wednesday.  They will be followed by the framers who will promptly frame the radius roofs.

The framers put a roof on the Mass choir and are continuing work on the covered walkway.  Stone and precast installation continues on the exterior and the plan is to begin interior Chapel precast this week.
