If you have been in the Church recently, particularly when it is raining, you have no doubt noticed there is a leak in the roof on the west side that drips through the ceiling into the church. That area has been a trouble spot for some time, and while we have tried various measures, it has become apparent that a long-term solution will involve rather extensive repairs to both the roof and church ceiling. Please know that we are aware of this issue, we are working with roofing professionals to address it correctly, and we will keep you updated when we have more information about next steps.
