Exile #3, Month #2

One month ago today was the first day of the church renovation. We now have a rough aperture where once a rock wall separated the sacristy from the parking lot. By the end of next year, this will be the new church entrance. Given that the building was first envisioned as a gymnasium, the original plan for this space might have been locker rooms.

Meanwhile, 22 Masses prayed in the temporary space and maybe about 400 more to go. Not that I’m counting down or anything.

Used to playing near the “crossroads” of two wide aisles, my pianist is feeling a little suffocated being cornered in the temporary church. Sometimes with other musicians to hurdle to get out. There are no plans to demolish any walls near her, so we may have to live with it over the next twelve to fifteen months.
