Dear Brothers and Sisters,
When I arrived at the parish in October of 2007 it was brought
to my attention that the parish plant was in dire need of
maintenance and repair. I immediately hired Deacon Jack
Kenny to be the plant manager and under his guidance
we have worked hard to bring the buildings up to code. All
roofs have been placed, including the Church and the Kelly
Gym. New HVAC systems have been installed for the Church
and the School and we are now in the process of installing
cameras to provide more security.
Now, it is time to turn our attention to the Church interior. As
you may know the ceiling was covered in wall paper which
over time has deteriorated and collapsed. The floor in the
Church also needs to be replaced. This project has been an
ongoing concern. The track lighting in the Church is old and
antiquated and difficult to maintain. There are other concerns
that need to be addressed as well.
Before embarking on an interior renovation the Diocese has
requested that we assess our needs in light of the understanding
of Art and Worship as set forth in the documents of the
Second Vatican Council. With this in mind I have requested
that Tony Varas, the director of liturgy for the Diocese of
Metuchen, give a presentation to our parish this Tuesday evening,
February 19th at 7pm in the Parish Hall. All are welcome
Tomorrow, Monday, February 18th is President’s Day. Mass in
the Church is at 9 am and the Second Novena Mass at 7
pm. Enjoy the holiday.
