Contractors installed several supports for the exposed church while the foundation pouring and digging continues around it.
The foundation under the church was shored up with ancillary supports alongside the original brick columns.
Inside, four of the columns got fancy suspenders - strong, steel cables affixed in an X-shaped configuration around the westward four columns.
Next week the surveyors will return to lay out the exact markers for the foundations which should follow soon after.
Pray for no torrential storms in the meantime!
