According to information provided to the Archives by Father Peter Harris via email on 23 September 2019, the time frame for demolition of the old hall and construction of the new hall was as follows: "On Sunday April 18, 2004, a 'closing of the old hall' event was held after the church service. We gathered in the old hall for one last time, prayers were said and we all said 'farewell' to the old hall. Over the next three weeks, the demolition company performed to process of removing windows, wires, plumbing, glass, etc. Tuesday 11 May 2004 was the actual day of demolition of the structure. Some of us watched from the back stoop of the Church House, as the machine with the wrecking ball and mechanical jaws performed the actual taking down of the structure. By 4 pm, our old hall had been reduced to a pile of rubble. Over the next few days trucks picked up and carried away all the rubble, and then the construction of the new hall began. By early October the hall was almost complete and usable. The Dedication of the new Hall was Sunday 24 October, 2004. Bishop Hiltz was with us for this special event."
