Feature Walters is fabricating and supplying three tracery frames for the new St. Catherine of Siena Church on Rymal Road just west of Upper Sherman in Hamilton. The traceries are architectural ornamental work which forms the decorative openwork for the windows. The traceries are behind the triangular windows on the south, east and west sides of the building.
After three years of planning and approvals, construction is set to begin. The structural steel and metal decking which is being supplied and installed by Walters Inc. is currently over 75% fabricated with completion of the church expected by mid to late fall of 2022.
St. Catherine of Siena Parish is the newest Roman Catholic Parish in the Diocese of Hamilton. It is the union of two parishes established in June 2017; Corpus Christi Parish and Our Lady of Lourdes Parish. The name was selected with reference to St. Catherine as a bridge builder between communities.

The church will accommodate 800 parishioners with additional space for a pastoral centre, an administration centre, meeting rooms, choir rehearsal space, an Adoration Chapel and a Bell Tower.
