April and May Work

CHICAGO, IL – Significant progress is visible from the air and the sidewalk, as all 8 trusses have been installed! The majority of purlins linking the trusses will be in place this week, soon followed by sag rods.

Scaffolding covers the interior east wall to support our masons and their ongoing work at the top of the wall.

Work through the rest of April and the month of May will be overhead in the church interior. As safety is paramount, we encourage all supporters and interested parties to continue enjoying the progress of the restoration through this blog, our website, and views from outside the fence. At least until the roof work is complete, regular updates with photographs and videos will be posted to keep all of you in the loop, safely.
