Open Your Church Doors Wide Once Again!

Church-Doors-St.-Lazarus-East-BostonHow can we open our church doors to the faithful to pray and secure the church’s Sacred Appointments?

The pastor at St. Joseph St. Lazarus asked Egan’s Church Furnishings and Restorations research this question and come up with a solution. Egan’s team of craftsmen were in the middle of restoring St. Joseph St Lazarus Church to its previous majestic artistic beauty when the pastor asked for a solution to this question.  This is a question many churches have faced since the late 1960’s.  

After several meetings and numerous design ideas we came up with a reasonable workable solution:  Design and install new interior doors with clear safety glass that can be locked when the church is not in use.  This will permit the exterior door to be open with the clear glass doors on the interior to be locked when needed in order to secure the church’s Sacred Appointments during the day.

Our new interior church doors are designed so when services are beginning the all clear glass doors will swing in and will stay open as the congregation enters for services.  When services are ending the clear glass doors will swing out with hardware to hold the door open when the congregation is exiting.

Egan’s newly installed clear glass interior church doors are also designed with locks, this permits the exterior wood door to the church to be open once again during the day.  The faithful will now once again be able to say prayers with the feeling they are in the church and viewing the Tabernacle or Monstrance in the Sanctuary.

This is the experience Egan’s brings to every church restoration project; craftsmen that have real world experience and come up with solutions unmatched in the industry.

St. Joseph St. Lazarus was completely restored by Egan’s with no interruption to weekend services or loss of collection!
