In 1940, Fr. Lambillotte inaugurated a “birthday club”. The donations coming form it were to shoulder the expenses of church renovations that were started don May 26 of that year. Each parishioner was asked to give a birthday gift to the church on his birthday in thanks for his past year of life. A total of $1111 was received towards the estimated renovation cost of $1375.

The church had new fresco and altars put in. Low masses were held each week because of the inconvenience. In 1942, new pews were also installed. Bake sale money was used to defer the expenses. Also for a $25 family offering, a new pew would carry a metal name plate engraved with the family name. These brass plates are still intact on all pews.
