San Lorenzo church update

Saturday, 7-30-11

I wrote a couple weeks ago (July 12) about the old Catholic church in the canton of San Lorenzo being redone. They’re fixing up the walls on the inside and the outside of the church. I’ve visited the church a couple times since that first blog to check on the progress and take more pictures. It is looking beautiful! Below are more photos of the church.


Working on the front of the church


Scraping old paint off the columns


Working on the side of the church


Lots of work


Hauling cement


Making concrete


Precariously balanced


Standing on a board that's being held up by another

The other side of the church


Lots of scraping


Signs of hard work


Working inside the church


Things piled up in the middle of the church


Making more concrete


The front of the church


Smoothing the sides of the walls


It's going to be beautiful!

It already is beautiful - what a wonderful sanctuary for a community of faithful people! Thanks for the update Alisha!

The church will be beautiful when all finished. I really like those columns in the front. Some pretty scary balancing acts going on there.
