Church Floor Refinishing at Halfway Stage
The refinishing of the wood floors of the Church is at the halfway point -- the left side looks great, as you can see at right.

The right side pews were removed by volunteers after Sunday's 5 PM Mass.

Volunteers are needed once more -- Saturday (Aug. 2) at 8 AM -- to reinstall pews on the finished right side.


 

See links below  for more photos.
