Church walls get spring cleaning

The limestone walls of St. Matthias Catholic Church are power washed and tuckpointed roughly every four to five years. Due to the porous nature of the stone, it can absorb moisture and become discolored over time. This particular washing was delayed from its original 2020 cleaning due to COVID-19. This year’s maintenance was carried out by Fred Jackson Tuckpointing, of Dubuque.
