The scaffolding erected throughout the interior of St. Margaret Church is an incredible sight! Literally, an entire floor has been constructed forty feet above the pews. Workman high above stand face-to-face with the hanging chandeliers and the top of the marble baldachin over the altar is at eye level. On June 18 delivery of drywall was made and shortly after the work of fixing it to the ceiling began. Meanwhile, scaling paint and water-damaged plaster in the vestibule and the underside of the choir loft were attended to in preparation for a new coat of paint.
The church interior will become brighter thanks to the installation of new LED light fixtures set inside the ceiling. Everyone at St. Margaret should appreciate the exhausting work of our parish volunteers. Coordinated by the Physical Plant Committee, these men have been laboring in the intensely hot church rafters just below the roof – removing the old incandescent lights, rewiring the electricity as needed, and securing into position the new lights. Doing this work in their free time is saving us a huge expense.
For everyone’s safety, the interior of the church cannot be visited during this work. Here you can click here find some snapshots of the project. As the work progresses, new images will be added… So come back!
