RESTORATION WORKS AND PROVISIONAL CLOSURE OF THE CHURCH OF LOS ESCOLAPIOS

In an entry on this page of March 12 of this year, entitled “VISIT OF THE COSELLEIRO DE CULTURA” we reported on the restoration works that are going to be carried out in the Cardenal College building, affecting the church, among other areas . After a meeting held last Friday, April 30, and after addressing the intervention and safety studies, it has been decided to provisionally close the church to worship because it is impossible to combine worship and restoration works.

Therefore from next week the service will be closed until next August, we understand that at the end of it.

Since the main works have to be done when there are no children at school and for that, take advantage of the months of June, July and August.

We really feel this circumstance that in some other case has been repeated. In the eighties of the last century because of a lightning strike and at the beginning of the twentieth century due to the restoration works, a circumstance that forced the church to be re-consecrated as stated on the marble plaque that is located in the presbytery.
