What Was Old

Good Shepherd Parish (f/k/a St. Stephen's) has a new, very impressive cross atop the steeple. We have been waiting and waiting and waiting for this cross to make it to its final resting place. The old one was damaged during Katrina, though Luz likes to say it was damaged when a gigantic bird ran into it. Either way, it needed replacing. Behold! It went from this:

James enjoyed checking out the heavy machinery necessary to make this happen. It is incredible to see what sort of effort it takes to replace a cross on top of a church.

Life is busy in the Vaicius house, so busy that I actually agreed when Christian suggested dinner might involve fast food. It was 7, I was still at work...what can I say?

Over the next few days I will be busy with all the goings on at work and a few little distractions here and there to remind me that I am not my job, not all the time at least.

I'm surprised I never saw this happen. when did they change it and how long did it take?
