RE-IMAGINING: In renovating any older building it’s what’s known as the “A” word.  While we thought we’d dodged the bullet on this problem, there was an inkling of concern prompting further analysis and the results were positive for ASBESTOS.  This carcinogenic material was a common component in building materials prior to the 1980s.  Floor adhesive was tested early in the project and no asbestos was detected.  However, as workers prepared to remove the adhesive, a deeper layer was discovered — probably tile adhesive from the original 1951 church — and it tested positive.
     While most interior work is on hold this week for asbestos removal, our Ellis Construction project manager says we’re still on track for the Dedication Mass on June 19.
     One recent outdoor improvement was cleaning the concrete cross on the east-facing front, which is shown above on the right.  You can compare it with the "before" image on the left. The top-left photo shows scaffolding in the Baptistry for painting and light replacement, as well as a portable air-conditioner brought in for better drying conditions for painting and floor installation. The top-left photo shows the church entirely covered in plastic as the ceiling was painted.
     See more photos and information at the web site.
