Work on the Shrine Church - The west front of the Shrine Church has been successfully re-plastered and re-painted. However, major work is now required on the roof lantern above the chancel (see picture on the right). A very heavy spell of rain recently caused a flood of water to shower the altar party during a recent celebration of Mass. External scaffolding will be required and as well as repairing the leaks, the opportunity will be taken to treat the lantern timbers and repaint. (See Latest News for an urgent update.)
