We have completed a phase of renovations to our church with the addition of the audio/visual system. We are continuing to fine tune our understanding of the equipment and train our volunteers on how to best use the equipment. The cost of this phase was $150,000, which included a built-in AV booth and the AV equipment. This equipment allows us to provide a high-quality livestream, as well as project readings and music so that attendees can participate in the Mass. Thank you for your support of these improvements.
The building committee is now looking at a second phase that will include the renovation of the sanctuary (altar area). First, we are looking at leveling off the sanctuary platform, adding a ramp for people to get into the sanctuary, and lightening the colors of the sanctuary. Second, we will also be looking at a light reduction material for the windows to lessen the intense sunlight on the interior of the church. Third, we will also be studying the additional use of acoustical material to help with the audio concerns in the building. And last, we will be looking at enhancing the lighting of the church with additional lamps, upgrading wiring, and replacing the dimming panel. Estimated cost is $500,000. Thank you for your ongoing support of our renovations.
