Just a safety reminder for anyone that might get ambitious and try to move a stone by themselves when nobody is around or attempt to work on an already standing gravemarker, read this story. Ironic as it sounds, you don't want this to happen to you.

I was in St. Columban briefly yesterday and snapped a few photos of the wall progress, starting here:

It's looking very good.

I also added photos of the front fence/wall showing it's disrepair. A project for another day.
 
Be sure to also follow updates on the progress page as they become available:
