Work Continues at St. Rose

The altar installation started this week, so there are pieces and tools everywhere, and that’s why things are pretty dusty and cluttered in these pictures. I thought it’d be nice to have some “under construction” shots to look back on when it’s all finished, though. Thanks to my wife, Angel, for taking better pictures than I was able to! I have at least 100 more, that I’ll be posting in batches as I get time to label them all. As before, click on them for full-size versions.

Construction begins on the altar:

Just some of the pieces waiting to be assembled:

There’s probably a technical term for this, but it’s the painting in the ceiling of the dome at the center of church:

Some more shots of how the ceilings and walls come together:

Windows and choir loft

The view from the sanctuary:

We have a real, old (and real old) organ, that I’m told works, but needs a little work. The pipes on one side (and the ugly air conditioner):

The gorgeous window in the choir loft:

And up-close on the center angel in that window (you really have to see these up close to appreciate how beautiful they are):

One of the two confessionals (complete with heat, as you can see if you look closely):

Here’s a shot from the choir loft, showing the sanctuary and the extent of the construction that’s going on:

And here’s a neat one with the sun reflecting off the cross:
