Our Santo Cristo Chapel at the Shrine is in dire need of structural and physical repairs. The floor under the altar on which the image is located is buckling due to years of water damage and threatening to topple the statue, and the plaster on the walls is starting to crumble.
Unless repairs are made soon we will be forced to temporarily close this chapel and move the statue to secure storage until the necessary repairs can be made. This chapel was dedicated in 2006 due to the generosity of the local Portuguese community. If you can contribute a donation either via stopping by the Shrine office or by clicking the PayPal Donate button below or even by volunteering time and services to help us address this issue, it would be greatly appreciated.
Please consider contributing to this cause of saving this important shrine for our Portuguese community. All proceeds will go towards the restoration of this chapel, and your name will be engraved on a plaque commemorating your contribution.
