And the progress continues

This is a very important week in the construction progress - as our friend and wood carver, Alexander  began installing the reredos and other chapel appointments.  As you can see in the photos below, everything arrived in tip-top shape - after it's long voyage across the ocean.  Alexander began constructing the reredos today and will finish within a week.  Joe is keeping us updated via photos - so we will be posting often in the next few days so you can share our excitement as well! 
Steve and Sr. Augustine opening the doors that will adorn the top portion of the reredos.  The symbolic Phoenix will be viewed from the cloistered side

The completed (or nearly completed) cloistered Mass choir

The reredos in many pieces...ready to be assembled

The star of david light in the vestibule

The Lamb of God doors will be viewed from the public side of the Chapel

The nearly completed chapel exterior - newly stuccoed portion above the columns looks awesome as does the precast entry way.  WOW.
