SAINT MARY’S EPISCOPAL CHURCH
St. Paul, Minnesota

This recently completed worship space renovation in St Paul, MN, provides for accessibility and a refreshment of finishes & lighting. However, the creation of a traditional rood screen separating the new chapel from the main worship area is the key and defining element. This screen, beautifully crafted in wood by St Paul Fabricating, defines a new daily chapel, dedicated to St. Mary, and lowered to align with the other chancel areas. The project modifies, yet preserves, the church’s architectural integrity while enhancing its liturgical effectiveness, all within a $600,000 budget.
