St. Joseph's Church begins restoration work

St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Sturgeon Bay is undergoing a huge restoration project this fall.  The century-old building is under both the National and Wisconsin Historic Registry.  The project, which is currently in phase four of the restoration timeline, began masonry repairs two weeks ago and will also include repairing the huge Rose stain glass window in the choir loft.  Dianne Coopman, a finance council and ad hoc restoration committee member, says this is by far the largest restoration project on the church in recent history.



Coopman says the mason and window restoration work will cost an estimated $230,000.  She adds that the fundraising efforts conducted in the last few months successfully exceeded that amount allowing a cushion in case of cost overruns.  The complete project is expected to be completed by the end of November.
