We considered installing a stained-glass window in the east wall behind the altar, but we decided that was too ambitious and expensive for the time being. Del is now completing the furniture items in oak that coordinates with the rest of the cathedral furnishings, and they are beautiful (see pictures below)!

We are still working on how to adapt the area to the north of the altar, where the sacristy entrance is currently concealed behind a frosted glass panel. We plan to eliminate the frosted glass and the step, and hope to find a more attractive window design to replace the very basic window in that wall. We are also seeking a suitable design for the congregational chairs.
Several parishioners have offered to sponsor individual furniture items as memorial or thanksgiving gestures, and a plaque will be created to acknowledge all the donors and honorees. There still remain a few pieces in need of a sponsor, all of them priced at between $1,000 and $2,000. The congregational chairs will also be available for sponsorship.
Please contact the Dean if you are interested in making a gift.
