This seems like a project worthy of support by those who wish to see an increase of awe and reverence in the Mass, inspired in part by the beauty of the sanctuary where the liturgy is celebrated. The fund-raising site has these concluding paragraphs:
Would you like to be a part of this ongoing effort to recover this “mystical element” within the liturgy and architecture? The Church has been returning to such venerable practices as the use of Latin, chant and incense during the Holy Mass. Establishing a sense of awe through such tangible means has also helped to restore a sense of the sacred within our church.
We want to give our best to God. We want to uplift the minds and hearts of those who worship here; for this is where heaven touches earth. Please help us make this a reality! Thank you and may the Lord bless you for your prayers and generosity.
