Our Elegant Drapery Will Hang in a Historic Atlanta Church!

The Curtain Exchange of Atlanta is very proud to announce an exciting project that we are currently working on. Jim, the owner, has been working with the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, a historical Atlanta church, to replace the drapery that hangs behind the crucifix in the church sanctuary. A member of the church came to Jim directly and asked for his assistance on this meaningful project.

This has been an intimate, community-driven project. Jim worked personally with church directors to select a few different draperies. Then, the different options were displayed in the church, and after a Sunday service, members of the congregation voted and chose which drapery they wanted to hang in the sanctuary.

The new drapery will be an update of the current one. The congregation selected a beautiful deep red and gold panel, which The Curtain Exchange is currently custom making.

Everyone here at The Curtain Exchange of Atlanta is honored to work on this project not only because of the involvement with the church, but also because the church is such a beautiful historical building. Sacred Heart Parish was founded in 1880, when it was housed in a small, wooden building twelve blocks away from its current location. The church that the parish is housed in today was designed by Atlanta architect W.T. Downing in 1897, and has beautiful French Romanesque features. It officially became a historical building on May 13, 1976 when it was entered into the National Register of Historical Places due to its “artistically significant architecture.”

The Sacred Heart Parish received further honor more recently, when it was elevated to a Minor Basilica by Pope Benedict XVI on February 22, 2010.

We are incredibly honored to be able to serve the church in this way, and touched to be able to be involved with our community. It is a special opportunity to be able to provide the drapery that will hang in this historical location.

It is special projects like this one that make our business such a rewarding one to be in. To stay up to date on this project and others like it, please sign up for our newsletter and follow us on Facebook.
