A judge has decided not to lay his hands on a controversial church remodeling project. The Fayette County judge turned down a request from church parishioners in St. Lucas to put a stop to the remodeling of their church. Members of the St. Lukes Catholic church were seeking an injunction to halt the renovation of the church — claiming the planned improvements would detract from the church’s historic and architectural integrity. Judge James Beegley denied the request saying that the renovation plans were ecclesiastical — prohibiting the court from interfering. Church leaders had proposed installing an elevator to allow access to the elderly and disabled.
