Christ Our Shepherd steeple coming down

The iconic steeple and cross on top of Christ Our Shepherd Ministries’ Christian Library is coming down.

Years of roof leaks and costly repairs prompted the removal, Belinda Kirby, director of children’s programs, said. The group leases the space from building owner the Grace and Hope Foundation of Charlotte, run by the nonprofit’s founder Aana Lisa Whatley.

Whatley is paying for removal of the steel structure, Kirby said, but work is taking longer than officials expected because some of the steel is encased in concrete.
