Work Update: For the sake of clarification, the statue of Our Lady is not yet in its final position. It will not be on the floor once the work is completed.  At this point the new section of marble is being cut to cover the damaged area of the floor.   Once this has been put in position, the plinth will be put in place and Our Lady’s statue will then be placed on the plinth.  The fabric for the back drop has been chosen and the drape is in the process of being made.  Once that is done the lighting will be attended to both at the alcove and at the confessional so please be patient.


With every best wish and Blessing

To you, your families

and those who are dear to you

Monsignor Tony
