Progress in Athlone

Now that the leak in the bell tower has been fixed, work has shifted to renovating the interior walls that were also damaged by the leaks. Painters are currently climbing up and down scaffolding, hoping to have the job done in about 10 days.

To accomodate the faithful for Sunday Mass, a temporary chapel has been set up in the parish hall. The painting project also happened to coincide with the completion of the chapel at the new St Joseph's House (formerly known as Court Devenish House) where Mass was offered for the first time on November 21st. The priory will officially move there next week.

Stay tuned for pictures of the freshly painted Corpus Christi Church and the new priory!
