This video shows one of the steel beams being raised into place and the beginning of bolting it. After all the beams are installed, then all bolts will be tightened, and everything will be welded together. Everything was going great, but then we hit a technical difficulty with the crane in the early afternoon, so please keep the prayers going! They will be bringing in another crane first thing Thursday morning. (What is that language they're speaking, you ask? The crew that fabricated the steel and is installing it came down from Chicago, but they are originally from the eastern part of Syria. They are Assyrian Christians, and they're speaking Aramaic. These guys have a deep devotion to St. George, so they love working on our church.)

Stainless Steel for the Skin of the Dome

This is a sample that was shown in church today of the Titanium Nitride stainless steel for the skin of the dome on the new church. It will keep this gold color and mirror finish until the Second Coming, never tarnishing. In the reflection, you can tell that Fr. Radoslav likes it!

Dome Construction

Assembling the dome on the ground. A crane will lift the completed dome atop the building sometime in March, we expect. When we get closer, we’ll let everyone know about this big event, so you’ll be able to come and watch.
