June 2017 : windows and doors completed
façade facing West with window depicting the DESCENDING DOVE, the two patron saints and the beautifully carved entrance doors in local red wood
The manufacturer is doing an excellent job with the window frames .
Soon all 32 windows will be completed and installed.
As the roof renovation works on the Roseau Cathedral progress, the cross and the timber posts on the bell tower were removed to be replaced with new materials.
I have always wanted to know more about the cross on top of the steeple. It was unclear from documents who installed it and how tall it is.
What we found was both fascinating and somewhat disappointing and I will tell you more about this cross in an article, which will be posted on https://bernardlauw.wordpress.com
Below is my photograph of the cross. The detailing is fascinating.

The contractors ACE engineering Ltd started the roof covering works on January 4, 2017.
First they uncovered the main steeple .to investigate its condition.
Then they started the covering of the main roof.
As you can see on the photograph, a good part of the main roof section has been covered.
