Even a place of worship occasionally needs a little worldly help.
So yesterday morning on the tower of the church St. Johann in Irschenberg the point was examined and properly fastened again.
A work that is overdue, as Pastor Tadeusz Kmiec-Forstner notes: “Recently our cross wobbled badly in the wind.
It was high time to fix everything properly again. "
After all, the last work at the top was carried out in the 1970s.
In view of these almost five decades, it actually has a good shelf life balance.
Since the parish already had the crane on site, they took the opportunity to replace some of the roof shingles that had fallen from the tower over the years.
The repairs to the church tower are now fully completed.
As reported, the renovation of the moisture-damaged tower was finished a good year ago.
Rain had softened the tuff and made it crumble.
With the work on the cross, all weak points have now been eliminated.
