Beautification of your parish church

Have you come recently to Saint Innocent? Did you notice anything new?

Several members of our parish have been very generous in their time, and after many hours of work,

  • the frieze on the wall around the altar has been beautifully completed,
  • we have new and color assorted curtains at the Royal Doors,
  • new carpets,
  • and the outside walls have been repainted in warm colors, reminding us of the gold found in icons.

Here are a few pictures to give you an idea, but the best is to come and see in person.
