About the Renovation
In 2009, a major renovation of St. Mary Church was begun. Phase I included extensive structural repairs on the roof and painting the trim of the church exterior.
Internationally known architect Duncan G. Stroik of the University of Notre Dame was hired to guide the renovation of the church’s interior. The first phase of the renovation has been a great success; it focused on renewing the sanctuary of the church with custom Italian marble slabs along with a magnificent marble altar rail, pulpit, and baptismal font.
