Warm Weather = More Work at the Shrine!

Chicago, IL – Preparation work for the installation of the steel has begun at the Shrine.  The interior plaster wall demolition has also started.  The walls being opened to the elements for two winters has unfortunately damaged the plaster beyond repair. Thankfully though, last fall the interior of the church was digitally preserved through a scanning process which will allow for a compete rebuild of all the interior details of the columns, freeze and other plaster details.
