Archeological dig

April 12, 2008

During the renovation of the sanctuary of Saint Charles Borromeo church was found evidence of the original three-stepped altar platform and altar rail location. The church was built during the Second Vatican Council, so the first renovations were probably made when the church was only about six to eight years old. This recent renovation returned the altar to its original height though it is several feet forward of the back wall in line with GIRM # 299. The Extraordinary Form of the Mass is said at this altar five times a week, while the Ordinary Form is celebrated nine times a week.
