Sanctuary Update

The transformation of the sanctuary has been completed. The stained glass window of the Blessed Mother has been cleaned and reversed with brand new protective glass on the outside. What needs to be done next is to install additional lighting on the interior surface of the window which will display the gold leaf highlighting in the stained glass. The image of the Blessed Mother will reveal new features that cannot be seen now but were visible from outside the church in the natural sunlight. The new altar of reservation reconstructed with material from the old altar is now prominently displayed. The tabernacle is from the former Saint Maria Goretti Church. The Blessed Sacrament has a location of prominence at a higher elevation than the former tabernacle. This big project which has been initiated and completed during the Marian Year in the Diocese of Providence could not have been accomplished without the dedication of a few individuals who have witnessed to extraordinary Christian stewardship. I want to especially thank Ed Bolduc and Brian Trombowicz without whom this could never have been done without a great expense to the parish. May God continue to bless them for successfully taking on this amazing feat with all their talents.
