Glory to God! The construction of a new church building for St Herman's in Langley, BC is well underway.

As seen in the recent contruction photograph, the current progress is as follows:

  • Foundation has been poured
  • Foundation has been insulated
  • Underground plumbing has been installed
  • Bottom half of framing has been installed
  • Steel Templates for Steel Risers have been poured
  • Steel is currently in shop drawing approval stage
  • Cupolas are being formed by fiberglass company

The next steps are:

  • Install structural steel
  • Install trusses
  • Install roof
  • Weatherproof building
  • Install roofing
  • Civil work (sewer, fire hydrant, water)
  • Install windows & siding
  • Install Cupolas
  • Interior work (electric / plumbing / drywall, sprinklers)
  • Install raised altar
  • Install flooring
  • Install light fixtures
  • Landscaping

The planned completion date is December 2022, with the exception of landscaping, to be completed in the second quarter of 2023.

As the work progresses, some financing obstacles have arisen, and the St Herman's community is asking for the prayerful support of Orthodox Christians across the archdiocese to see the project through to completion.

St Herman's accepts e-transfers in support of the project to be sent to alanterry@shaw.ca.
