Pics, pics, pics, pics, picsThey will come in time, dear friend. In the meantime, the best I can do is suggest Google street view at this address: 332 Carlton Street, St. Catharines, ON
Is it that 2-storey house at the corner?
I'd love to see before and after pics. Hopefully everything is well documented.
Check that, I found it one house down. Google Maps didn't tag it properly.
Actually, you're right. The house was the rectory. The church portion is attached to it, with direct access between the two. We will use the house, which really isn't very large, as a small hall (big enough for coffee hour), some administrative space, and a bedroom for our priest who lives about 45 minutes away. He'll be able to crash there perhaps on Saturday nights once we get started having Vespers, and quite probably some nights during Holy Week. Our priest is a 71 year old widower so having this space was seen as a plus for us.
Dozens if not hundreds of pictures were taken during the inspection, but not very interesting to look at unless your thing is crawl spaces and leaky pipes
Once we get the keys, we'll start photodocumenting everything, of course, so stay tuned!
And thanks to all for your prayers and encouragement.
