Handicap Accessbile Ramp Constructed



Fr. Pius Macahlonis blessed and dedicated a newly constructed handicapped accessible ramp, made possible with funds donated by the Amys family as a memorial for Donald L. Amys who passed away on December 10, 1981. Donald who worked for Lenroot-Maetzold Funeral Home (as well as the Burlington Northern Railroad) had always expressed that his goal was to have a ramp alongside the front steps so that caskets could be easily rolled out of church into the hearse. The installation of the ramp, however, proved also just as useful for wheelchair users, as well as people pushing strollers, carts, or other wheeled objects, to more easily access the church building.
