St. Andrew's Remodeling Slideshow

St. Andrew's Remodeling 2002


Remodeling of the Chapel

For nearly two years plans and preparations have been underway for the remodeling of the chapel. Most of the work is now complete and you will notice that above we have included some photographs of the changes. The entire chapel and narthex have been repainted and carpeted. The chancel has been reconfigured. A new communion rail and new pews have been installed.

We have included pictures of the following:

  • views of the newly reconfigured chancel
  • the new communion rail and refinished pulpit
  • views from the chancel
  • views from the choir
  • views of the new pews and frontal screens

A Thanksgiving Day Prayer

Lord, thou hast indeed been bountiful. As we look back over the years,
how gracious thou hast been, how tender thy mercy, how warm and constant thy love.
Create within us, our Father, that true gratitude that shall make
this day of Thanksgiving one of rededication,
when we shall think not of how much we can eat but of how thankful we ought to be.
So may we -- all across this land today -- act as recipients of God's
richest mercy and bountiful blessing,
as we share with others. May we, in gratitude,
get on with the job of creating not only a nation
but a world in which all men shall have the right to seek happiness.
Help us to make that dream come true in our homes day by day,
in street and office and school,
and so to live that thou shalt be able to bless us
and bless the nation for which we pray.
In his name, who created us as a nation, we pray. Amen.
[Peter Marshall]
