Msgr. Kieran Harrington, rector of the Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph, Prospect Heights; Father Gerard Sauer, pastor of St. Mel’s, Flushing; and Father Jun Hee Lee, parochial vicar at St. Mel’s, participated in the blessing of EverGreene Architectural Arts‘ new studios in Industry City. EverGreene, who restored and created new artwork for St. Joseph’s Co-Cathedral in 2013, moved its restoration and specialty construction studios to Brooklyn earlier this year after operating out of Manhattan for 39 years. The studio blessing ceremony also included a behind-the-scenes tour of the design, mural, plaster and conservation studios as well as a reception led by EverGreene’s sacred space director Emily Sottile and founder, Jeff Greene.
