MADISON – Findorff is excited to announce the ribbon cutting at Grace Episcopal Church, which has been a center of ministry on the Capitol Square and throughout Madison for over 175 years. Since 2012, the congregation has been engaged in a process of discernment and fundraising to improve its facilities and make its historic buildings a place of welcome and spiritual respite for the community.
This special event marks the completion of major renovations, including the Church’s worship space, classrooms, gathering areas, as well as the iconic Cornelia Vilas Guild Hall. Additionally, the reconstruction of the Church’s central stairway from the Loggia to the Nave creates a striking entrance from the courtyard. Rev. D. Jonathan Grieser, Rector of Grace, says “After nearly four years of planning, fundraising, and construction, we are thrilled with the results of the project. Our improved facilities have already enhanced parish life and will open our beautiful and historic facilities to the community.”
Interview and photo opportunities: Media are welcome to attend this local ribbon cutting. Representatives from Grace Episcopal Church, as well as those from the project’s design and construction teams, will be in attendance to speak about the project’s importance to the parish and local community. Photo opportunities will also be available.
Who: Fr. Jonathan Grieser, John Wood, Vince Micha, Steve Klaven, and Jane Ferris will share special remarks.
When: Sunday, April 24 at 12:00pm
Where: 116 West Washington Avenue in Madison, WI
