ANNOUNCEMENTS
COLUMBARIUM REPAIRS
The structure in the Columbarium on which the cross sits (sometimes referred to as "the marble altar") was donated by Peggy and Jim Hynes in memory of their daughter Suzanne . Over the years the underpinning , as well as the marble itself, deteriorated to the extent that it became necessary to completely rebuild the structure. The work has been completed and we once again have a beautiful piece of art which we hope will endure for many years. Thanks to all who worked on this project.
ART AND LETTERS PARISH OUTREACH
Thank you to all the families who participated in the Art and Letters Parish outreach! These beautiful pieces of artwork and letters will be safely delivered to people who could use some cheer during this time. Stay tuned for more outreach projects!
