A Church In Need....

I realize that this is a little outside my sphere of influence, but it's an important story nonetheless.

The St. Francis de Sales Oratory in St. Louis is in the midst of an extensive capital campaign for renovation and restoration work of their 100+ year old church.

Pretty, right? Well, not so much if they don't correct the foundation problems that are causing their impressive spire to shift and rip away from the building. If they can't, the building will sustain more damage and the spire will probably either collapse or have to be forcibly taken down. The Project, naturally, finds both options odious.

Tradition for Tomorrow, however, is doing its best to make sure that doesn't happen. Far be it from me to tell you how to spend your money, but anyone with an interest in classic church architecture--and really, why else would you be here right now?--is encouraged to check it out and, if possible, make a donation.

The Project certainly will. Godspeed, St. Francis de Sales.
