The Renovations at St Boniface’s Dome

After the storm which blew in one of the windows around the dome, a great deal of repair work has been needed. At first we thought one window would have to be replaced, but now we find work  is needed on all the windows in the dome. They have been removed for conservation and strengthening. […]
