The Immaculate Conception

Bill Furry has been in touch with Brenda from the Autrenrieb family, whose grandfather painted the St. Vincent de Paul Church ceiling murals. Before Labor Day, Brenda mentioned that she is coming to Springfield in the next week or so, and will take time to inspect the murals that Mike Lelys has in temporary storage at the Catholic Diocesan Archive.Hopefully, we can discuss restoration and display options with Brenda at that time.
I will post again when we know exactly when Brenda is visiting Springfield from Edwardsville, so we can make an appointment to access the murals at the Archives, and so anyone who is interested can join in this new viewing.
