A new (different) fabricator for the bronze handrail to be installed on the ambo has been chosen. We are informed that delivery will be six to eight weeks, too long a time for us to temporize any longer without a railing.
So the ambo from the chapel has been pressed into service in the meantime for use by those who are not comfortable without the handrail. The sanctuary is a bit more crowded and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion and Altar Servers are asked to make accommodations.
I don't have specific word on the timing of the bluestone step modifications. The installation of the Ward Avenue doors should be "late next week."
