Chapel Roof Renovation Nears Completion

September 25, 2019

Originally constructed in 1911, The Chapel of the Holy Names has been under renovation this year. In January and February, the Sisters embarked on a project with a local flooring company to refurbish the floor to its natural splendor.

This summer contractors have been busy rebuilding the sub-structure beneath the Chapel’s historic terra cotta tiles. The process involved removing the tiles and temporarily placing them on the scaffolding erected around the building.

“The clay tiles are in great shape,” said Kevin Haberman, VP of Environmental Services. “Along with the Sisters, everyone is happy that they could be put back in place and thus preserve the beautiful and historic nature of the building.” The roofing project is anticipated to be completed in time for the fall rain.
