  • FROM THE PASTOR’S DESK

    UPDATE ON NEW CHURCH CRUCIFIX

    While on vacation with my sister and her family in northeastern Italy the first two weeks of July, I visited the “PEMA Art Studio” in the small alpine town of Ortisei (St. Ulrich in German) in the Val Gardena of the South Tyrol (near the Austrian border) (google it). The town specializes in master woodcarvings, a skill practiced for many generations. It is from PEMA that I had ordered the 15 foot hand-carved crucifix that will hang in place of the triptych icon now there. I was quite impressed by the fine craftsmanship of the statues I saw as I was shown around the spacious showrooms. (Years ago, in the 1990’s, as pastor of St. Laurence Church in Spring Creek, Brooklyn, I had ordered a life—size statue of the patron saint of summer barbeques (google it) from the same town. It now hangs inside the Brooklyn church.)
    The carving, the shipping and then placement of the crucifix will take about 3 months, I was told. We hope to have it in place for the 70th anniversary of St. Teresa’s Church building dedication in late October.
    Let us pray that God will expedite our holy endeavors.

  • CLEANING UP CHURCH

    In the past few weeks, numerous crews of men have been hard at work to “Power-Wash” the entire outside lower level of the church building. Years of dirt, soot and grime have now been washed away from the limestone and brick. The church sparkles in the sunshine. All three entrance stairways (50th Avenue and two from the parking lot) have been beautifully painted - they also sparkle with freshness and light.
    In addition, the three main wooden doors of the church entrance (on 44th St.) have been refinished after years of exposure to the elements.
    We thank all who continue to generously give to our renovations projects for the 70th Anniversary of our beautiful church.

  • A SUMMER PRAYER

    Long warm days…
    The pace of life slows…
    A time for picnics and rest in the shade…
    Lord, help me to rest awhile in the cooling shade of your presence.
    Slow down my restless heart and fill me with gentle compassion for all your people. Amen.

  • CHURCH ATTIRE - A FRIENDLY REMINDER

    As we enjoy the warmer weather, it is always helpful to remember that modesty and dignity in apparel benefits our common worship of God in this beautiful Church. We certainly encourage you to wear comfortable clothing, especially on the warmest days. However, out of respect, please avoid wearing clothing that is overly casual. In so doing, we show reverence for God and our act of Sacred Worship. (Remember, our church is air-conditioned)
