Restoration Work

Interior of Saint Francis of Assisi Church, as it appeared in the 1950's. (Photo courtesy of Ann Shugrue.)
The photos on this page show the progress of the work done from October 2003 to June 2004 to restore the church's Sanctuary to its original design. All of the work was planned, performed, and paid for by a small group of volunteers.

During 2002 and 2003, the church's support columns were stripped of layers of paint and given a natural finish, and the capitals of the columns were painted gold. Also in this time frame, the Stations of the Cross were restored by painting their frames and carefully repainting the original fancy lettering at their base. All of this work was performed by volunteers from within the parish (and some from other parishes) who exhibited extreme care and dedication to their cause.

Mixed in with the photos of the restoration work are photos of the church interior, taken from the very peak of the arch which frames the sanctuary. This bird's-eye-view perspective has been enjoyed by very few people in the the history of the Church.
