Roof issues cause problems at Dubuque church

Members of a church in Dubuque are looking for somewhere to hold services for three to six months while engineers fix serious roof issues at their building.

There are serious issues with the roof at St. Elias The Prophet Church.  The Rev. Dustin Lyon says the Greek Orthodox church will have to close while a new roof is designed and built.

Crews propped up the roof temporarily while parishioners rushed to move valuable hand-painted icons.

Lyon and parish council president Mantea Schmid say they're grateful the problem was found before anyone was seriously hurt.

There's not yet an estimate for how much repairs will cost.  Lyon and church members have reached out to Dubuque Area Congregations United for help.
