PRESERVATION

The Sanctuary at Christ Church is in urgent need. Decay of the aging walls threatens the stability of the structure, and the stained glass windows require extensive restoration. A Preservation Team is leading the renovation project. Bill Egan, a structural engineer, C W Brinkley, Inc. and Epiphany Studios are working together to stabilize, repair, and restore Christ Episcopal Church, but we need your help!
