New Chapel

| | Comments (4)

At St. Edward there is a little side chapel that also doubles as a cry room on Sundays. Also during the week it was usually used for a variety of other meetings and events. It was functional, not exceptionally pretty, and poorly treated by the people who loved it to death. The Huge crucifix was one that used to hang in the main church. On the side wall were very large, ornately framed images of the Divine Mercy and Our Lady of Guadalupe. The fan was a nice touch.

Pews were donated and retrieved from Diocesan storage. They were in horrible shape. Ken and Cruz took several weeks to refinish them. The room recieved fresh paint. The little altar was attached to the back wall. Smaller images were obtained. The Crucifix from the Rectory found a new home here. The room was provided a small heater and air conditioner as it getts pretty stuffy in there with all the people and the large Window gets very hot when the sun shines on it.

Now it will be used almost exclusively for prayer. The best compliment was from one parishioner that said, "wow, it looks like a chapel now."

I notice that there is no tabernacle in the chapel. Is that because there is a tabernacle in the main church?

Definitely has your touch, Jeffrey. Very nice. The refinishing of the pews is not an easy job---labor of love. What happened to the original crucifix? Will it return to original site?

1. Tabernacle is in the church, in the center.

2. The old crucifix will replace the cross in the parish hall.

Fr. Jeffrey Keyes,
Great job on the rebuilding of your chapel!
