DID SOMEONE SAY NATATORIUM?
Anyone who lives in Greensboro knows we had more than our share of rain since Wednesday night. The monsoons hit us late afternoon with as much as 7 inches of rain flooding homes and roads throughout Greensboro. According to the rain gage, we had 3 inches of rain at the church . Even though the basement is almost totally enclosed, 18 inches of water poured in, which would be a good start toward a Natatorium. The water came down the trenches where the HVAC is being installed and into the openings in the side walls. On Thursday with the pump working all day, the water level in the basement was down to 6 inches, then came more rain that night. Friday morning the level was up to 23 inches and the pump kept running. With the pumps still running, the water was back down to a few inches when I checked midday on Saturday.
Even though, we had that setback, this was a good week. You will notice at Mass this weekend that the steel has all been erected and the church is now taking shape. You can clearly see the shape of the Main Nave, Day Chapel and locations where the stained glass windows will be placed. Even with the weather delays we continue to make progress toward "Making A Place At The Table"
