From the Pastor
on 09/27/2014  

I am sure you have heard the phrase, "It is best to look before you leap!"  This means we should consider many things before we make a decision.  There has been some talk and interest in making some changes in the sanctuary of the church.  The flooring of the sanctuary is made of terrazzo, a material that needs to be cared for and maintained and time has come for this to occur.   Currently much of the sanctuary is covered by carpeting and a platform where the priest celebrant once sat during Mass.   In order to clean the flooring, the carpeting and platform need to be removed.  The carpeting is getting a bit worn and since the celebrant's chair is no longer on this platform, now seems to be the best time to have this work done.

This takes me back to, "Look before you leap."  I need to ask the right questions before we do this.  I inquired from a few people in the parish if they recall when the carpeting and platform were added to the sanctuary.   No one can remember the exact time or how the carpeting & platform were funded.   Before, and if we decide to remove the carpet and platform I want to be sure we are making a wise decision.   Also I certainly do not want to offend anyone who may have helped to fund this project years ago.

Doing this would add much to the space; it would reveal the marble stairs that lead up to the high altar and tabernacle, and it would add more space in the sanctuary for the priest and ministers to move about more freely.  But before I make any kind of decision, I would like to learn more about the questions I am raising here.   So if anyone knows the history as to how or when these changes were made to our sanctuary, I would love to hear about it.  Please contact me at the parish office, 440-942-4500 if you can help me.

Have a blessed & holy week!
Fr. Chris
