A Work in Progress: The All Saints Electrical Vault Replacement Project is Underway!

You may have read about the "Vault Project" in the Saints Alive newsletter ... if not, then the details are posted below. Suffice to say, it is now a work in progress ... so here's a little glimpse into what it looks (and sounds) like here at All Saints Church today!

Important notice about All Saints campus: The Vault Project

Not many of us knew we have a vault under our “north driveway” (between the office building and the OCC trailer), containing all the power services we get from the city of Pasadena. We were informed this spring that it’s in very bad condition – which is why we’ve had no parking in that area for the past months. We are replacing it in September, and there will be some inconvenience and disruption during the weeks of Sept. 12 and Sept. 19.

From 9/12 through 9/16, you will see a crane, backhoe, jack hammers and all sorts of intriguing activity, as we dig out the old vault and lower the new one into a freshly dug hole. In order to reconnect all of our power and phone service, the City will turn off our power on Tuesday, Sept. 20 and Wednesday, Sept. 21. Our campus will be closed both days; in addition, emails won’t be received by staff (even off campus) and phone calls won’t be answered (no voicemail either). We are cancelling all meetings on campus those two days. (Your staff liaisons will be in touch with you.)

We appreciate your patience and good humor during this stressful time, and we are very grateful for the leadership of Lonnie Schield, chair of Buildings and Grounds, in guiding us through it. If you have questions, please call Davida Jones at 626.583.2729.
