St. Joseph's Church exceeds goal for restoration project

St. Joseph’s Catholic Parish in Sturgeon Bay is continuing to work on a church restoration project this fall.  Masonry repairs began over a month ago and calls for work on the twin Gothic steeple towers.   The project will also include a restoration of the rose stain glass window located in the choir loft in the back of the church.  Dianne Coopman, a finance council and ad hoc restoration committee member, says the parish exceeded expectations on raising $230,000 for the estimated repairs.



St. Joseph’s parish began in 1865 and the 108-year-old church is under both the National and Wisconsin Historic Registry.  The complete project is scheduled to be completed by the end of November, according to Coopman.
