NORWALK - A major renovation project years in the making is finally complete at a historic Norwalk church.

Leonard Porter, a classical painter, created a 13-and-a-half-foot altar to be the centerpiece at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Norwalk. Porter's painting is part of a $1.5 million renovation project at the church over five years.

Porter says he says he feel humbled and honored to have been given the task.

Father Greg Markey says more than 700 families from the parish community contributed to the project. He says they are continuing to notice new and intricate details in all the changes.
