St. Francis Hall Construction Update

Hall Stage Removed

The renovation of St. Francis Hall is deep into the demolition phase of the project.  The old stage has been removed and the concrete has been cut in several areas for new footings and a ramp into the storage room. The Men’s restroom has been completely gutted, including the removal of the concrete floor.  

St. Francis Hall construction.

Beginning next week, a certified abatement company will remove the popcorn ceiling in the south half of the hall.  At the same time, due to a generous bequest of the Margot Etzler Estate, the Parish Center kitchen is undergoing a significant refreshment!  The kitchen will receive numerous enhancements including new flooring, fresh paint, a new roof and skylight, new cabinetry and equipment.  We are very excited about these improvements and the positive difference it will make for our many ministries.
