St. Dennis in Madison gets new sanctuary

Starting the project

The ideas for the project began with Bishop Robert C. Morlino of Madison’s recent request that all churches in the Diocese of Madison place the tabernacle in the center of the church’s sanctuary by October of this year.

The tabernacle at St. Dennis has been located in a side chapel since the church was built in 1983.

The project grew when it was determined that in order for the altar to be centered, the sanctuary must be redesigned.

The other major portions of the project such as redesigning restrooms and doorways to comply with handicap access codes, new lighting, and parking lot improvements have been on the parish’s needs list for quite some time.

St. Dennis wanted to do as many of the improvements as they could at one time to have more efficiency in fundraising and building and grounds work.

This is an intensely ugly interior. Please tell me it's the "before" picture.

Agreed. More like the interior of a Masonic temple, if it weren't for the crucifix. Hellish.

That is just plain old ugly.
