Father Peter’s Announcements

Father Peter’s Announcements

Many blessings to you all! The clean up process continues in earnest! Though the fire damage was limited, the smoke damage not so much. Therefore, we will continue to hold Weekend and Daily Masses and all other services in the Parish Hall until further notice…at least a few more weeks…which is the bad news.  The good news however, with such a thorough inside and out cleaning, the Church will be like brand new. 
Thank you for your continued patience, concern and most all kind support.  This is after all an incident that affects us as a Parish Family and there is no better Parish Family than Our Lady of the Assumption!

Our beautiful Our Lady of the Assumption Church recently took a rough hit with a fire that thankfully was contained to the single area of the Church to the left of the Altar (the niche). The good news is that the fire damage was quite limited, the bad news, the smoke damage was quite extensive. In a snap of a finger, Insurance protocol was immediately put in place, and cleaning began in earnest that very morning. Unfortunately, the cleaning will take some time, quite a few weeks perhaps, but will be done and done efficiently, thoroughly and well. As sad as it was to pull a very beautiful statue of Our Lady that was in the corner from the debris that is charred beyond recognition. I was reminded that the statue was made of wood and the Church mostly wood, stone, tile and all sorts of building materials that all contribute to raising a majestic and noble structure that is our particular Church.
