Following   the   Second   Vatican   Council,   a   certain   amount   of   alteration   was required   to   accommodate   the   new   Liturgy.   The   altar   rails   and   pulpit   were removed,   and   the   sanctuary   was   extended.   A   new   altar   of   Hopeman   stone was   designed   and   carved   by   parishioner   Liam   Barr.   He   also   constructed   two lecterns from the alabaster, salvaged from the rails and the pulpit. In   1988   dry-rot   was   discovered,   requiring   immediate   remedial   action,   but   in 1995   a   substantial   incentive   to   undertake   a   major   restoration   was   given, with   the   award   of   grants   by   Historic   Scotland,   together   with   a   loan   from   the Diocese    of    Aberdeen.    Work    on    this    historic    Grade    1    Listed    Building commenced   in   March   1996,   and   the   bulk   of   it   was   completed   by   December of   that   year.   Supervising   architects   were   the   Oliver   Humphries   Partnership, and the work was executed by contractors Hall and Tawse, Aberdeen.

      History of

St. Thomas Church                    Part Five     
Following   Vatican   2,   a   certain   amount   of   alteration   was   required to   accommodate   the   new   Liturgy.   The   altar   rails   and   pulpit   were removed,    and    the    sanctuary    was    extended.    A    new    altar    of Hopeman   stone   was   designed   and   carved   by   parishioner   Liam Barr.    He    also    constructed    two    lecterns    from    the    alabaster, salvaged from the rails and the pulpit. In   1988   dry-rot   was   discovered,   requiring   immediate   remedial action,   but   in   1995   a   substantial   incentive   to   undertake   a   major restoration    was    given,    with    the    award    of    grants    by    Historic Scotland,   together   with   a   loan   from   the   Diocese   of   Aberdeen. Work    on    this    historic    Grade    1    Listed    Building    commenced    in March   1996,   and   the   bulk   of   it   was   completed   by   December   of that    year.    Supervising    architects    were    the    Oliver    Humphries Partnership,   and   the   work   was   executed   by   contractors   Hall   and Tawse, Aberdeen. This   is   a   brief   history   of   our   beautiful   church.   It   is   a   story   of vision, faith, and enthusiasm, which has led to success.
