1990-1995 - Installation of a large Eas…

During the period 1990 to 1995 under our Pastor Fr. John Kratko, the parish installed a large Eastern Style Chandelier along with 6 smaller ones. These were imported directly from Greece and needed some re-wiring by an Electrical Contractor to meet the electrical code. An engineer was employed to ensure the roof structure would support the weight of this large chandelier which measured about 8 feet in height. After some modifications and with the skilful hands of our Parishioners, we hoisted and successfully secured the main Chandelier to the roof beam to the delight of everyone. The entire project was handled by our Parishioners and was paid for by 6 families plus a $10,000 donation by Mr. William Smoley, and is a beautiful one-of-a kind addition to our Church.
