Liturgical Status of the Sanctuary Word has been received from Adrian Hamers and Co. of Larchmont, that the Sanctuary Lamp given to our Church by the Prindible Family in 1925, along with a set of candlesticks (combined cost was $ ) will soon be in the process of restoration.

We will hope to have it returned and blessed and re-hung for Advent. Hamers will NOT send it via transport wishing to take a side trip to Larchmont, , please call the Parish Also, work will soon begin in order to replace the gutters and downspouts on the Parish Hall.
