Construction Phases

UPDATE 11.12.2018

We are in the final stages of completion for the North Stairs. Stay tuned for updates on on entrance openings as we move towards construction on the South Stairways. 

UPDATE 11.5.2018

The handicap ramp is being poured this morning. Work will continue as long as the weather remains cooperative.


UPDATE 10.24.2018

Work on the stairs project is progressing well.  Concrete for the north stairs was poured this past Wednesday and Thursday.  After having to deal with multiple drainage issues, good progress was made the last two weeks on the installation of the piping for the snow melt system.  Assuming continued good weather, we’re expecting concrete to be poured on the flat services this week.
Due to the drainage issues, we are approximately two weeks behind the planned schedule (which was to have the north stairs completed by the end of October).




UPDATE: 9.7.2018

Good progress is being made on the Stairs Project.  You may have seen the concrete mixer recently as we had our first concrete pour for the footings of the north stairway.  Additionally, good progress is being made on the boiler for the north snowmelt system. 

Over the next week we will see the old handicap ramp removed, and additional concrete pours for the stair walls.  Then the tubing for the snowmelt system will begin to be put in place.

Please continue to use caution as you drive by the construction area.

Let us know if you have questions or concerns!

UPDATE: 8.31.2018

Construction has begun! Construction has begun on the North Stairway so remember to come early and plan ahead. We will have transportation assistance for those needing extra help into the building, please meet at the bench located by the new stone stairs near the kitchen. Both handicap entrances are open as well as the south stairs entrance. The best way for people to enter when they park in the north lot (and do not need assistance) is to walk to the west stairs (one’s that lead to the west entrance -kitchen area).


The beginning stages of our Stairway Construction Project are underway. Phase 1 of the project will mean the north entrance stairway will be closed and will affect parking. This will start the weekend of August 18-19 and is expected to last until October 2018. Golf carts will be available for those needing assistance.




Here's a view of the exit / entry plan for the church while the stairs construction project is occurring.  

During phase 1, the north entrance to the church will be closed, therefore everyone must use one of the other entrances / exits.  The main entrance / exits during phase 1 are: the south stairway entrance, the west entrance (near the parish hall) and the east handicap entrance.   It is expected that phase 1 will last until the end of October.


  • The north entrance will still be open for the Aug. 15 Holy Day Masses.
  • Starting August 18-19, the north entrance will closed and alternative entrances will need to be used:
    • the Opdyke handicap entrance
    • the bell tower south stairs, and
    • the new stairs by the parish hall kitchen
  • We will have two golf carts and they will be used to transport those needing assistance to the entrance near the parish hall kitchen


During phase 2, the south entrance to the church will be closed, with all other entrances / exits available. For more information, please email and stay tuned to for the latest updates.
