The first stage of the project was to renew the St. Albert The Great sanctuary. Much of the original marble flooring was obscured by a carpeted two-tier platform installed 30 years ago. The objective was to expose all the marble, but it was unknown if the original marble had been damaged during the platform construction.

The Pastoral Stewardship Council (PSC) got an update from Roland Quintero at its Wednesday, January 11 meeting. It was pleased to hear that detailed implementation planning is underway. It is likely the work will occur in two phases, due to the availability of the church and for storage of the pews during flooring/carpeting replacement.

Our parish plumbing contractor Degree HVAC is replacing and rerouting a water pipe for the school which has broken in the past several times. The last break/leak was april 2016 and it was about $6,000 to repair. Originally installed in the 1950s when the school and church were built, the water pipe runs under the porch of the hall. It is being relocated to under the eaves to make it more accessible for repairs. And it is being replaced since it’s so old.

The task of finding a team of 4-5 volunteers to do this task is given to each Site Committee. It will take 2-3 hours to check the referenced items and complete a reporting form.
