A VISIT BY SPX STUDENTS

Something NEW and EXCITING happened at the construction site of St. Pius X on Thursday. Over 400 excited students got a first hand look at what was taking place inside. They listened as Msgr. Marcaccio talked about our new church and then each class wrote favorite scriptures on four walls where the Stations of the Cross will be placed. After writing their scripture selections, each class member signed his/her name. Their signatures will be preserved as part of our "Place at the Table". Hope you enjoy watching the video clips and some still photos from Thursday activities.

This clip shows the first group of students arriving!

In the second clip Monseyor Marcaccio explains what the students are doing and how their signatures will be preserved.

FIRST VIDEO TOUR

Major efforts are underway as we "MAKE A PLACE AT THE TABLE", but its very difficult to capture with regular photographs. Therefore today, I begin a new feature where I walk through the construction and let you watch as our new church begins to take shape. I will be posting 3 different videos in this first posting.

The first video was taken as I walked from the Parking through the mud (we had 3/4 inches of rain last night) to the cloister and the front entrance.

The second video begins just inside the front doors and walks from the Narthex into the Nave. The workers you will see are spraying sealer on the ceiling.

The third video was taken beginning at the rear of our church near the entrance to the Day Chapel. All the windows you see have the protective glass installed and our restored Stained Glass Windows will be installed near the end of construction.
