It took three days, a new crane, a ton of elbow grease and a lot of prayer…but the cupola has finally been removed from the top of the Marian Wing!
The 9,000-pound beast didn’t come willingly. As you can tell from the iron support structures beneath, it was obvious the original builders didn’t mean for it to go anywhere.
Fortunately, crews were able to remove it then remove the beams below so it could be set on the ground.
We haven’t decided yet how best to incorporate this into the new construction. One idea is to use it in the landscaping near the new front entry. Time will tell where this beautiful reminder of a treasured building will be enjoyed by future generations of Sisters.
