Church Interior Redecoration Planning Begun PDF Print Email

Planning has begun for restoration and redecoration of church interior
Nearly three years have passed since the completion of the extensive roof replacement and steeple project at St. Bernard’s Church, and now a new committee has been formed to start exploring options for the future restoration and redecoration of our interior worship space.

Members of the new Redecoration Committee include parishioners Melissa Lampe (chairperson), Alvin Schloesser, Sharon Darcey, Lorraine Rhodes and Lori Grabske. The committee is working with Conrad Schmitt Studios of New Berlin to create a new “vision” for the interior of St. Bernard’s that will highlight the historic character of the church while preserving the existing murals and our original Stations of the Cross.

The interior redecoration project will include the repair and restoration of the plaster walls and ceiling surfaces, fresh paint in a new color palate which will likely include four to five harmonizing colors that blend with the existing murals and stained glass windows, as well as decorative stenciling throughout the interior space. The committee also is exploring the costs associated with replacing the existing liturgical furnishings, installing new flooring, upgrading the sound and lighting systems as well as the possibility of reinstalling an altar in the Sanctuary similar to the original altar at St. Bernard’s that was removed as part of the 1978-79 redecoration project. Planning also is underway to make the Narthex more light filled and inviting.

Although planning for this project is in the very early stages, the committee anticipates it will have a finished full-color artistic rendering of the vision for the restored interior to share with the parish later this year. Questions regarding this project can be directed to Melissa Lampe at (920) 390-2061.
