We are halfway through the cleaning and restoration projects at St. Jude Chapel on Main Street. In December, a new mosaic background niche was created for the Infant of Prague statue. In February, our team ascended to the top of the Risen Christ mosaic to clean, stabilize and repair the mosaic. A small fracture was creating loose tiles in the center of the mosaic. Earlier repairs had been insufficient, as they didn't match the original material or colors. Missing tiles were sourced from our studio and filled to match the surroundings. All mosaics in the chapel received a careful cleaning, including the Virgin of Guadelupe, the Blessed Mother, St. Jude, St. Anthony and St. Theresa.
