The Raising of the Steel Beams for the Roof
On February 16, 2015, the positioning of the large steel roof beams for the new hall was begun. This phase in construction is an important indicator for the remainder of the project. The beams will indicate the height and shape of the roof and add to the development of our visual image of the hall.
The beams join and complement the exterior walls that we have watched being built, the hall will now move closer to forming an enclosed structure. It is an exciting time for the parish as the construction continues towards the planned completion in July.
Watching the placement of the beams leads to thoughts of how they will shelter those who use the hall for generations to come. We can imagine the many diverse functions and prayers that will be held and said under this roof.
We, the present parishioners, have a special warm feeling about the progress of construction. Each brick, each trowel of mortar and each reinforcement bar we have seen take its position brings to mind the years it has taken to reach this point. The efforts have been special and they are creating a very special place. Memories of all types will occur in the hall that will have very special meaning for the participants.
The highest point of the building will soon be reached. An unspoken feeling of achievement is evident in each parishioner’s heart as they observe the physical product of their long and often difficult efforts.
