A message from the Trustees concerning the ongoing work on the patio in front of the church. As you may know, over the course of many years, we have been having problems with water leaking into the choir room due to leaks coming from the patio area. The foundation for the brick fence on the street side of the patio is the back choir room wall and the cause of the leaks emanates from leaks in the masonry of the brick fence. There have been many approaches taken to leave the wall in place while attempting to keep out the water, but ultimately, we will not be able to keep water out of the choir room without removal of the fence wall. The current repair involves removing the brick wall, reworking the foundation wall, extending the waterproof membrane past the foundation wall and down the exterior wall to the existing below grade waterproofing. This will allow us to repair the wall in the choir room, which was damaged by water, making the space useable again for choir practice.
