The first floor of the accommodation block, taken from above:
The walls of the first floor going up:
And space being made for the lift shaft on the ground floor of the existing building:
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.
“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.”
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.
