Crews are working to stabilize the downtown chapel of St. Peter's Catholic Church, which was closed in June because its foundation was sinking and a side wall was bowing.'
The chapel was built in 1846 on Carteret and Duke streets and is known as Historic St. Peter's.'
On Wednesday crews from Patterson Construction were working on the exposed foundation joists in the chapel sanctuary. Patterson is shoring up the north wall of the historic chapel, replacing the piers and foundation that had slipped. '
After the chapel closed last year, St. Peter's relocated its 18-year-old Eucharistic adoration to the Lady's Island campus.'
The worship, called Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament by the Catholic Church, involves church members consecutively praying an hour at a time in front of a consecrated wafer given to Catholics during communion that they regard as the body and blood of Jesus Christ.'
Church leaders couldn't be reached Thursday to comment on when services might be moved back to the downtown sanctuary.
