We’re still here. my parish is still in the dark, but thank God not much damage. I’m writing this post via iPhone so please excuse any typos. I have been incredibly moved by the resilience of the people of New York, New Jersey and beyond. Power is slowly coming back to our area – my mother just received her power. will have plans here at the parish to move Masses this Sunday to the parish auditorium where there is more natural light if the power doesn’t return. We have survived the last few days on candles and whatever was left in the fridge that had to be either cooked or thrown out. As a rectory we have bonded together – especially over meals. Those moments to come together around the dining room table and share in the fraternity of the priesthood have been moments I don’t think I’ll soon forget.
I’ll try to upload pictures of the last few days as I am able to. Please remember to pray for us as I’ll be praying for all of you. God Bless you all!
