Sacred Heart Catholic Church... 10 Years Later
Ten years ago this fall, Weberding's finished installing one of our largest jobs ever at Sacred Heart Church in Indianapolis, Indiana. Sacred Heart suffered a horrible church fire on April 27, 2001 that damaged much of the church including the High Altar, Side Altars, Pulpit, & Statues. We were tasked with refurbishing anything that could be saved and reproducing items that were too badly burned to be salvaged. A year and half later Sacred Heart re-opened and the results were amazing. While this job was large for Weberding's it allowed us to showcase our unique talents and bring a beautiful altar back to life.

Weberding's Carving Shop was recently fortunate enough to be featured in the Criterion Catholic Newsletter. They wrote a great piece telling the story of the Weberding family, the start and continuation of the business, and the celebration of our 70th anniversary. We are very thankful to the Criterion for this oppurtunity and we hope you enjoy the article!
