Happy Thanksgiving!

Brothers and Sisters,

It is such a blessing to be participants in good historical events! God has graced us once again as we dedicate our restored organ on Thanksgiving Day, November 22nd. The Most Reverend James A. Checchio, Ordinary of the Diocese of Metuchen and our neighbor, will bless our fully restored organ as he leads the 9:00 A.M. Mass. Almost one year to the day when George Trapp, Chairman of our Finance Council, assumed also the chairmanship of our parish committee, our Lord has helped us to reach this milestone.

More than 500 parishioners and friends including the Diocese of Metuchen gifted our project, some very substantially, to make this possible. A permanent remembrance will be installed in the Cathedral marking those in whose memory or honor gifts had been made. Few parishioners know that one third of the original specifications could not be installed in 1962 because our parish could not then raise the money. Yet, our music director, Thom DeLessio, used his God given talents to lead our liturgies with glorious sound. Now he makes the organ perform in all its glory and complete design.

The first concert to demonstrate the capacities of the full organ will be our annual Christmas Concert in January which will feature also all of our parish choirs. Details will be announced, but no one wants to miss this performance. Other concerts are also being arranged with invited organists to perform.

The organ was restored by Patrick J. Murphy & Associates, Inc. from Stowe, Pennsylvania. Their fine workmanship speaks for itself. The company was selected after reviewing several from around the country.

We are all so blessed to part of making this history which will endure for many years. The newly restored organ will enhance the worship of many who will visit our Cathedral, the home of Bishop Checchio’s cathedral.

Remember the First Sunday of Advent will be December 2nd when we begin to prepare our hearts for our Lord’s Nativity.

Please always bring your children to Mass. They are most welcome!

In Christ’s service,
