At long last work has begun on our new drains, this has been made possible through generous donations from individuals and grant making bodies.
Some of you will have noticed activity around the church. Structural engineers and soil experts are currently digging trenches and bore holes all around the perimeter of the church to investigate the ancient foundations.
This initial work is necessary to test what the church is built upon so that we can more accurately determine the cause of the cracks in the walls and help us plan the digging of the new drains.
As part of the this work the marble artwork at the entrance of the church has to be moved and stored safely to avoid damaging it, but apart from that our open church, regular masses and concerts will be undisturbed.
Thank you for your support and patience,
Fr James Elston
