Water damage 24Feb15Parish Facilities News — Two sprinkler heads burst at the west end of the church earlier this week, causing significant water damage, mainly in the work sacristy. There appears to be no damage to the altar area or the main body of the church. The affected area is being cleaned and repairs will be done in the near future. We will advise if there are any schedule changes necessary as a result of this incident. (photo: many ceiling tiles were destroyed in the sacristy.)
