Church Renovation Update

In lieu of a daily reflection, Father wanted to share with you a little about what is going on inside the church. The project will change the current santuary to make it handicap accessible. It will replace the flooring throughout the church and replace the current lighting with modern targeted lighting. In addition, we will repiant the interior and replace the sound system. Stay tuned for future updates of more exciting changes…

Thank you to everyone: year-round parishioners, winter parishioners and seasonal visitors who have so willingly chosen to support the renovation. Your generosity has made this possible – Memorial opportunities are still available. Please contact Fr. Carucci or Jean Marzullo about details. God Bless you all!

ONLINE FUNDRAISER for The Christian Service Center

Free Online Concert Benefit for the Christian Service Center in honor of John Prine Join us Tuesday, April 21 from 4-6 pm for a Facebook Live concert featuring the music of our recently departed John Prine. The concert will be recorded and posted on YouTube as well.

Please consider making a financial donation request rather than food donations. CSC is able to purchase, at substantially reduced prices through the USDA and food banks, critically needed staples for an expanding client base. Additionally, they are able to more precisely manage family needs. Food is great of course, but financial contributions are infinitely more flexible and deliver much greater results. Any amount given will be meticulously enhanced, not only by prayers of gratitude but also by the savvy buying prowess of some really devoted people.
