There is something bad happening to our church. It is in danger of being torn down. This is a view of the windows near where the alter is inside.
You can see the steeple where the stucco is falling off the brick. A few years ago lightening struck it. It actually caught fire and burned. Then it was rebuilt. This year the stucco started popping off.
All I know I have learned from the people who live next door to the church.
They said the trusses were possibly damaged during that time or have been due to the heavy rains of these past too years. If it due to rain, then it's the foundation. The church will have to be torn down and rebuilt. Yikes...that won't be cheap. Because I can almost guarantee it won't be a pole barn like church. It's in an old residential area.
You can see the old school across from the church here...the red brick building. That is where services are being held now. For safety sake. The priest's home is right next to the church on the corner...not visible here. I asked if they would save as much as possible , and was informed that absolutely all that could be saved ,would be . Breaks my heart, the thoughts of losing this church. I was raised 4 blocks from here. So it's always been a visual thing for me. Some of my grandkids went to school and church here.
Hope all of you are having a great day. The sun is out here . I am planning on watching the lunar eclipse of the blood moon tonight. I will post about my trip to Horton's tomorrow. Prayers for all in need. XO
