Dedication of the Altar - 24 Jan 2015

The Mass of Thanksgiving and Altar Dedication took place on January 24th, 2015. The Church was filled to capacity with parishioners as well as many dignified guests, including His Eminence Thomas Cardinal Collins There were many parishioners that contributed to the celebration of the mass but in particular the beautiful music and voices that filled the church really made it a truly special evening. A wonderful reception, organized by the CWL, was held following the Mass. A special thanks to Fr. Laszlo, for his tremendous vision, leadership, and dedication throughout the entire renovation project. Also thanks to Tess Bondoc the parish secretary who planned each and every detail of the Dedication Mass and celebrations. It was such a wonderful way to give thanks and celebrate this truly amazing place of worship.

Christ has Risen!

Thus says the LORD: All you who are thirsty, come to the water! (Isaiah 55: 1)
