Beginning 28 October 2020, we began the restoration process of the original oil paintings at St. Joseph in collaboration with the Office of Archives of the Diocese of Richmond and Richmond Conservation Studios.
We began with the central crucifixion scene, see the removal process here.
The process of restoration for each painting, 7 in total, will require, removal, cleaning, restreching, determination of proper procedure of remounting and reframing, as needed.
