As reported Monday, January 11, the Good Shepherd Community Center Chapel Floor was replaced earlier this month.  Members of Roosevelt Island religious organizations that use the Chapel say that they were not given adequate notice of the floor replacement and:
... that Church objects were damaged and worship services disrupted due to the floor replacement...
RIOC disputes that adequate notice was not given to the religious groups about the floor replacement.

Hopefully, the Chapel Floor re-surfacing will be completed in time for Sunday services.
