Preparing for the Inaugural Mass

Tomorrow is the official inaugural Mass of the academic year. Which means that today was plumb full of last-minute preparations in the campus' brand new church, some of which I captured here: doubling the number of hand-made pews, installing a St Francis statue made from the trunk of a tree (complete with puppy dog!), rehanging a larger-than-life-sized crucifix after the artisan who crafted it came in from La Paz for some final adjustments (apparently Jesus was a little too gordo), and making sure the Virgin of Miracles was comfortable in her grotto nook beneath St Francis.
