HELENA- A construction crew took on a very tall task near downtown Helena on Friday morning.
The Cathedral of St. Helena was in need of some roof repairs, so a crane hoisted a worker up to fix the paneling.
A worker told us they were afraid the tiles might fall off so they needed to secure them.
The Cathedral stands about 230 feet tall and was constructed in 1908, and since that time there have been several renovations and repairs to the building.
The most significant repair took place in 1935 after a major earthquake damaged the south tower.
While we were shooting video we also noticed a bird's nest carefully built on top of a statute above the doorway.
The crews left the nest in place with hopes that St. Francis, the patron saint of animals, will look after them.
