Church Door Replacement
The Parish is replacing the Lorain Road vestibule church doors as well as the two side doors in the vestibule, including all hardware.
The existing doors are original, installed when the church was built in 1948, and they were refurbished in 1992. Due to rot, warpage and hardware failure, Father Lanning, with the recommendation from Parish Finance Council, has decided to replace the doors.
The estimated cost of each set of doors is approximately $12,000.
Parishioners are invited to memorialize a loved one by purchasing a set of doors or by making a significant donation towards the cost of a set of doors. The memorial will include an engraved bronze plaque adhered to either the interior or exterior brick wall adjacent to the doors.
