Refurbishment of St. Leo Catholic Church on schedule

December 23, 2010

The refurbishment of the St. Leo Catholic Church began earlier this month and is off to a good start, according to Father Brian Vossler.
“The progress for our refurbishing has gone very well so far,” Vossler said. “At first, we got off to a slow start because we were waiting for a company from North Carolina to come and pick up our pews. They were delayed by about a week and a half, but we did some planning and did some work out in the gathering space so it wasn't completely wasted time, and once we got all of the contractors on board it's been going very smoothly.”

The $900 check was presented by VFW 5887 Post Commander Ricky Hicks to Elk County Sheriff Jeffrey Krieg and deputies Patrick Straub and William Gerg Jr.
