More renovation of confessionals and the church

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The floors of the confessionals, the entrance way, the two storage and server-cassock closets and the floor of the main church are down. More work for the pews and putting stuff back for Mass later today.

I’ve told people that the confessional is just for confession (except when it’s a cry room during Mass). But, in other words, it’s NOT to be a broom closet, a place for music stuff overflow, etc.

We’ll need some dedicated artwork. Now that it’s divided, there will have to be a crucifix and other artwork on both sides, framed acts of contrition in whatever language. Perhaps English, Spanish and Latin. When a confessional is treated well, it sends the idea that the sacrament itself is actually important. That’s the message every wants. Lots of work with lots of enthusiasm is going into this, carpenters, electricians, ductwork specialists, flooring guys…
