Adventures in minor repairs.

As promised, Fr. Kenny and I had an adventure today!

We decided to do a few minor repairs (glue down the decorative piece on top of the tabernacle, replace the lock on the desk) and we decided to hang up some lovely icons.

Fr. Kenny figures out which order to put them in….

I met my predecessor, Fr. Domenic, once.  He showed me these lovely icons and said he always had wanted to hang them up, but never got around to it.  There is no better time than now, right?  I love these, they are Orthodox icons, which means they are more of a Middle Eastern style, very similar to some I saw while I was in Turkey last year.  Orthodox icons always appeal to me, I’m not really sure why, but I find them lovely.  Emmanuel has a beautiful replica of the Ghent altarpiece (click here to read about that), so I thought it would be great to put them around it.

Kenny wanted to hammer the nails, but the hammer was a bit too heavy for him, so he delegated instead.

It turns out that the 1970s wood paneling is super hard to drive nails into, but we got it done!  I hope the parishioners enjoy some new art and that it inspires them in their lives as they inspire me. I also hope I put them in the right order, ha!CAM00608 CAM00609
