During construction of the building, services were held in St. Andrew's Episcopal Church. Sunday, June 29, brought the finishing touches. The wrought- iron sign in front of the 40 by 67 foot brick structure was set in concrete. The interior was polish- ed for the day and the light birch pews and the terrazzo floors gleamed. The windows and the stations of the cross are from the old church, but most of the in- terior is new. The main altar and the side altar were handmade by Joe Ritter of Brickeys. Two floor baskets of pale pink gladio- li flanked the altar for the dedi- cation. After the afternoon ceremonies, a banquet was served toconclude the day's events.

While at the observatory, the Pope looked through its powerful telescopes to view the surface of the moon, and particularly the designated landing spot in the Sea of Tranquillity. He also watched television coverage on a special set which had been installed for the moon-landing coverage. After the lunar module (Lem) landed on the moon, Italian tele- vision broadcast a pre-taped film of the Pope in which he expressed his enormous satisfaction and ad- miration for the lunar achieve- ment. He spoke both in Italian and in English. In English, Pope Paul said: "Here Pope Paul VI speaks to you astronauts from his observa- tory at Castelgandolfo near Rome. Honor, greetings and blessings to you. Conquerors of the moon, the palid light of our nights and of our dreamsl May you bring to it with your living presence the voice of the spirit, the hymn to God our Creator and our Father. We are close to you in our good wishes and with our prayers. We, Pope Paul VI salute you together with all the C a t h o 1 i c Church." In his initial Italian comments the Pope opened with the words: "Glory to God on high andpeace on earth to men of goodwill." Then he continued: "We the hum- ble representative of that Christ who, coming among us from the abyss of divinity, made this blessed voice echo throughout the firma- ment. We echo again to you today, repeating these words as a festive hymn on the part of all of our terrestrial globe, no longer the impassable boundary of human ex- istence but the threshhold opening on the vastness of unlimited spaces and of new destinies.
