Brussels church finishes renovation

St. Francis and St. Mary Parish members will be able to celebrate Holy Week in its newly renovated sanctuary. Services have been held in the church’s basement while the nearly four-month project was underway. The church received new plaster, paint, carpeting, electrical wiring, trim work, and much more. The sanctuary last received this kind of work back in 1989, almost 30 years before Father Edward Looney arrived to be the church’s pastor. Thanks to the generosity of its parishioners, Looney says they were able to celebrate Mass a week earlier than planned and without instituting a capital campaign.

Looney says the feedback has been great after parishioners were able to attend Mass in the renovated sanctuary on Palm Sunday. After celebrating Palm Sunday, St. Francis and St. Mary Parish in Brussels will host Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday services.
