Our Lady of Sorrows
1987- 1988 Sharon, Massachusetts

Our Lady of Sorrows church is a picturesque, classic-style structure located in Sharon, Massachusetts.  The church underwent major renovations, resulting in improvements to both its functionality and appearance.  The sanctuary, which is the heart of this building, was redesigned to include moveable altar platforms and a new glass entry way.   The tabernacle was relocated to a niche in a stained glass window, creating an original and charming display.  New design included the creation of a stained glass backdrop, combining an existing stained glass window with new pieces, resulting in a splendid demonstration of color and light.  The interior finishes were completely renovated, restoring the character of the timber ceiling and accentuating the classical style of the woodwork.  The renovations were further enhanced by the redesign of the lighting system.
