MILWAUKEE -- After five years of fundraising and planning, the process of removing the iconic crosses and domes at St. Stanislaus Church for restoration began Wednesday, Dec. 5.
"They were copper in 1872, and then in 1962, they made them aluminum and put gold leaf on them," said Jeff Keller, foreman.
The project was made possible by donors.
Steeples without crosses look...strange. The smaller domes & crosses that rest atop these steeples at Saint Stanislaus were removed. Will be given a new copper cover. Should be back up in a few months. Can't get used to this sight. pic.twitter.com/YylPHmiWnk— Cream City Catholic (@CCityCatholic) December 9, 2018
