Amazing how much building can happen in just a month! from the outside it looks as if the parish center at St. Albert the Great is nearly complete... we know there is still much left to do, but it is looking quite fabulous! Here are some pictures to document the last month or so in the life of the construction phase of our new building! More to come!

April at Brickey Lane

Sand volleyball is nearing completion Grilling area near pavillion will have 3 built in grills

The Building Committee met on 3/23, the committee unanimously decided to remove the 4 classrooms along the rear of the nave. The committee felt that with the continued weekly growth in mass attendance, the parish would soon outgrow the worship space as detailed. Removing the classrooms would both improve the asthetic and functionality of the new building.

The footers and support columns have all be poured and the mason has started laying block.
The electric and plumbing have all be roughed in and the steel is scheduled to be put in place this week!

Check back soon, with the steel set and the block being laid, there will be a much more to look at in the very near future!

We are under Construction!

The rain has broken, for the moment. As I look out the front window of office on Brickey Lane I see men working, trucks moving, rumor has it that some footers will be poured this afternoon. It's a glorious day on Brickey Lane! Watch the blog closely for the next few months as we walk through every aspect of the building process. i'll show you some pictures and tell you a little bit about the progress of the building!

Rain Rain Go Away

We are so blest to have the much needed rain at Brickey Lane!!
It has, however, stalled the progress on our building project! The site is ready to go, the parking lot is leveled the equipment is on the lot, and the electricity is connected.
The office has been hard at work setting up billing accounts and filing tax exempt forms.
Now, we wait. We thank God for the gift of rain, and pray that sooner than later we have a few windows of sun in order to lay footers, then we will be on our way!

As always we ask your continued prayers for the St. Albert the Great Parish and the building project.
