New Building: Week 14 - Ceiling

The new building has now reached the first floor!

Here is the ceiling of the new parish office, bar and kitchen on the ground floor:

Standing at the bar and looking south, you can see the door and window of the new office:

And from the window, you can see where the bar will go:

Fr Daniel has been to inspect the site. Here he is standing in the new office:

Fr Dominic has been checking up on things too!

The steels have been put in the ground floor ceiling of the old parish centre — they will take the weight of the books in the new library.

And finally, the boiler house walls are slowly rising.

New Building: Week 12 - Parish Office

“And the people in prayer besought the Lord the most High, until the worship of the Lord was perfected, and they had finished their office.”

—Sirach 50:21

Above you can see the outer wall of the new Parish office. The wooden frames show where the window and door will be.

A couple of shots of the inside.

The window in this wall is very important — it will light the bar!

And the spaces have been made ready for the steel bars that will support the weight of the new library. The steel bars will arrive soon.
