A good several years ago, during my first trip to legendary Church Alley, I inquired as to the make of St. Adalbert's roof. I suspected it was oxidized copper, but the color seemed too bright and uniform. Almost three years later--so long I honestly didn't initially remember asking the question in the first place--I may finally have an answer.
One parishioner sent me the following note:
St Al's roof is copper., probably done in the 50's. Was a big deal back then if I remember correctly- " high cost but will last a lifetime"
So, my suspicions were correct, then. Score one for the Project! And for any of the countless people who pass it on I-95 and have wondered the same thing.
