The St. Bernard project started with the Reredos and the two side altars in the attached photos. It was definitely a team effort involving Father and his vision has added to the complete restoration of the parish back to an original compilation of gothic fixtures to match the old parish which compliments the stained glass and marble features of our parish.

I really enjoy seeing this. I grew up in a Catholic church that was quite similar to this, and unfortunately somebody had painted white over all the woodwork at some point in it’s history. It is still white to this day. I truly wish I had seen it in it’s glory days. Great job restoring the beauty of this church!

Amazing! Paul, you are quite the craftsman. Great job! Keep it up.

That’s beautiful work indeed. Next time I’m driving through Wisconsin I’m going to need to check it out in person.
