Don't worry, the pews will be back in order before the Bishop arrives!
My baptismal church, St. Joseph Catholic Church in Boyd, Wisconsin is reopening its doors for a Mass of Dedication of a Church Already in Use (yes, that's what they officially call it) on Sunday, March 19th at 11 a.m.
The church has been closed since last fall for an extensive renovation project. Since I can't make the drive for the Mass, I requested and gratefully received a tour of the church earlier in March.
St. Rose of Lima
Many of the historic elements of the church are being preserved, like the high altar.
Guardian Angel window
Angels float on the precipice above the Sanctuary.
Repainted organ pipes
Such a refreshingly new, but historic-feeling look!
Got to have a little fun, right?
St. Joseph Church, All Saints Catholic Parish

Thanks again to Father Felix for taking time out of his schedule to give a tour of the church while still in construction mode and for offering a few of my text notes!
