Need. Destruction and construction.
One of the confessionals has been wiped of its mold and mildew but the rotting cork board has absorbed the dank, dusty smell and so the smell continues to be nasty. The exhaust fan makes noise but seems to be exhausted. The soundproofing does a good enough job as long as the people in line turn off their hearing aids and retreat more than half way back in the church. The other putrid confessional/storage-unit is still being cleared out. Woodworkers, cabinet makers, sound engineers, electricians needed.
This is in the planning stages as of December, 2019. If you have basic electrical skills, we could use some help designing a good system of lights for letting people know when someone is in the confessional and when it is free.
Need: A handicapped ramp to the church/hall on the parking lot side of the building. Yes, our handicapped parking is in the parking lot, but our only ramp access is on the opposite side of the church. Not exactly an accessible entrance for those in wheelchairs or otherwise hampered. I need someone with knowledge of the ramp laws and practical knowledge as to how to make a functional entrance as well as concrete guys and railing put-er up-ers. Electronic door opener would be nice, too!
This is being done! Permits are pulled and December 3 the construction begins!
Need: You tell me. Some of you are new here. You see things in a different light than those who were here before. What needs to be done? Some of you have been here for a long time and have been dying to improve something. What is your dream?
These have come in through facebook.
--Electrician to check out wiring in whole church, confessional lights, speakers, ceiling fans, etc.. (This has been completed! Thank you!)
--Painters. Not exactly my priority, but will include it since it was brought up. I would rather see a new floor (marble and with three steps to the altar) first. But paint is much less expensive!
--Playground for the children. Now that we have more than one child total.
--Some men to move the hanging crucifix from its spot and place it on the wall over the tabernacle.
There is no more "baptismal font fund" but I cannot bring myself to eliminate the button to the right...
The baptismal font which was in the sanctuary when the Traditional Latin Mass first came to Epiphany is shown in the photos below. Really! What we replaced it with follows. You will know which is which. Trust me!
