Before & After St. Columban Church in Chillicothe. Missouri (Pic Credit: Liturgical Arts Journal)

Before & After: St. Columban Church in Chillicothe, Missouri

. . .built in 1879, St. Columban’s gothic architecture features pointed arches & high, vaulted ceilings which lead the eyes upward to heaven.  The existing decorative scheme was drab & dated, with severely deteriorated paint & plaster throughout the church.  4 original murals, depicted in the historic photo, had been removed, & the murals which still existed presented with a deeply, yellowed varnish coating & poor previous restoration attempts. . .
