Pendentives to Complete the Dome
Holy Cross Marchers Off to Washington for Life

Fleche Finished (almost)

The shingling on the fleche was recently completed. It will be topped with a decorative lightning rod, and the louvres will be painted. 

Besides serving as an architectural accent point over the main entrance and the location of the baptismal font, the spire also serves a functional use as a ventilation tower for the roof and attic. 

Fleche

 

Water service pipes laid. A six inch sprinkler supply line, two inch residential water line, a conduit for potential expansion of telecommunications equipment and a drainage line underneath the sanitary storm drainpipes.
