Storm Damage and Restoration

November 13, 2020

We are making steady progress on repairs to our buildings after the derecho.  The old pews will disappear on Tuesday.

This past week the roof materials were delivered, and hopefully the roof replacement will be completed by the first week of December.  Once the roof is finished, work on the interior of the church can begin.  That will take about three months.

The new pews are tentatively scheduled to be delivered in mid-March.

Of course, everything is dependent on weather, the presence of COVID, and a steady work schedule.  If everything works out, my goal is to be back in church by Easter.

The rectory still needs some extensive work before the onset of winter, with the rest of the work to be done next spring.

Continue to pray for a successful completion to these projects, which will cost well over $1 million, the bulk of which will be paid by insurance.  But there are certain things not paid by insurance, so be sure to please keep that in mind when you fill out your stewardship commitment for this year.


 

Daily Mass will return on Augst 20th at 9:00 am.  Weekend Mass will return this weekend at 4:30 pm on Saturday, August 22 and 8:30 am and 10:30 am on Sunday, August 23.  Mass will be in Pius Hall, please arrive early since seating is limited and we no longer have an overflow space.  You will want to enter the outside door near the statue of Pope St. Pius X.  There are three entrances into Pius Hall. Song sheets & collection boxes are located at each.  Please leave only ONE empty chair between you and non-family members.  At this time, we are not able to livestream from Pius Hall.

By the end of the day on Friday, August 21 all of our pews were removed from the church and placed in the gathering space and four large storage units that are located in the main parking lot.
Tuesday, August 18 2020 - Progress is being made, carpet has been removed and drying is progressing.

On Thursday, August 13, Servicemaster arrived at St. Pius X to begin the drying, cleanup and demolition of our worship space. 

 

 

On Monday, August 10, 2020, an unprecedented storm, now referred to as a derecho hit our area and St. Pius X Church, St. Pius X School and our rectory were all severely damaged.  We feel as though we will have many months of repairs ahead of us.
