ALTAR RAILING RESTORATION AND OTHER WORK CONTINUES AT SAINT JOSEPH, MACON, GA
We have begun to lay the marble floor tiles from Italy, of course and are still awaiting the completion of the actual altar railing which is being polished. New gates are ready too!
The first step on the nave level has been extended and tiled with marble. Just doing this has helped with going down these stairs from the top level of the sanctuary. There was something about having four steep steps now reduced to three with a large landing for the forth. It is on this extended step the altar railing will be installed.
As well, the removal of the ugly hand railings makes all the difference in the world in presenting a less constricted area to the eye.
Also we are repairing a leak and plaster damage below one of the "rose" windows in the church, thus the need for scaffolding.
