The church's interior received a complete facelift that included refreshed walls, new paint, revitalized pews, and an upgraded baptismal font. The project demonstrated meticulous attention to detail, particularly when dealing with the original stained-glass windows. To preserve the timeless beauty of the church, the team took great care in handling the windows, utilizing coverings to ensure their protection throughout the renovation process. This commitment to safeguarding the church's aesthetic heritage underscores the team's dedication to maintaining its historical and visual significance. The result is a revitalized interior that seamlessly blends modern updates while also maintaining the charm of the church's original beauty.

Our team's familiarity with the Diocese, Father, and the building provided a solid foundation for project success. The renovation came in under budget and accommodated a sometimes occupied building with efficiency.
