Metal Artisan Joins the Cenacle Project

This week we signed a contract with John Medwedeff of Medwedeff Forge and Design of Murphysboro IL.  John is a renowned metal artisan in the world of metal sculpture.  He is collaborating with us on the Cenacle project by creating some of the elements that will be incorporated in the custom liturgical furnishings.   John will be fabricating the special bronze Chapel entry door handles, that have been designed to resemble the crosses worn by the Cenacle Sisters.   He will also be adding his artistic flare to a flame sculpture for the lobby wall, as well as the candle stands, and some decorative accents for the Altar and the Ambo.  He told me, however, that he was most anxious to get started on the bowl for the Holy Water Font.  We are grateful that John has agreed to collaborate with us on these pieces and we anxiously await to bring the pieces together
