OUR SHINING LIGHT

ORIGINAL CHURCH VIRTUAL TOUR
— AS OF —
A CHURCH REMODEL WAS MUSIC TO THEIR EARS
Lumen Christi Parish members, Mike and Jeanne Schmitz, felt the sizable remodel project, slated to begin early 2019, needed something just as grand to help properly fill the new worship space with music.
Through the years the Catholic Church has long elevated the role of organ music. Michael and Jeanne were moved to search out an organ that could match the upcoming architectural changes of Lumen Christi’s worship space.
Listen to the journey of long-time Lumen Christi Parishioners and how they chose to donate a new, electronic organ for a space grand enough for the sounds of a pipe organ.

WHERE WE'VE BEEN
Take a unique tour of our existing parish space and experience it in a whole new way. Through today's technology, you can virtually walk through the church and refer to where Lumen Christi has been.
ACCESS TO THE CHURCH
Understand Access Limitations During Construction
Access to all parking lots remains the same.
Construction fencing will be erected after Easter and will block the current, main entrances to the church.
The new Main Entrance to the parish building will now be on the north side, at the pillar entrance.
The existing west side entrance will only be open for weekend Masses, and closed again during the week.
Handicap parking remains accessible at the pillar entrance on the north side - the front parking spaces will not be available for use during construction.
WHERE WE ARE HEADED
NEW ALTAR SPACE
The 2019 remodel plans call for a more predominant presentation of the altar. Not only will the space, as a whole, be pushed back to allow for more room, the roof will be raised to help highlight the space. In addition, new stained glass features will be created to accent the space in a more dynamic manner.
NEW MAIN ENTRANCE
As you drive past Lumen Christi Catholic Church on Mequon Road it has become obvious that much will be changing in regard to the entrance. Directly in line with the new placement of the altar, the new entrance will offer more space and an easier flow when entering or exiting the worship space. From the interior, looking east, the entrance will be a addition to the space, allowing for flexibility and ease of use.
