The parish, with the leadership of my classmate and their pastor, Monsignor Paul Fitzmaurice, contracted with New Guild Studio out of Braddock, Pennsylvania, to do the design and the work. They have done a number of churches in our diocese, and I admire their work.
The work has finally been done, and yesterday Bishop Edward Malesic of the Greensburg Diocese celebrated their 11:00 am l blessed the altar and sanctuary. From what I hear, it was a beautiful and memorable event, with the bishop bringing his wonderful personal touch to such long ceremonies. I have included a few pictures of the sanctuary and of the dedication for your viewing.
My congratulations to the priests and people of Saint Agnes Parish on this milestone event, and to all of us ... a reminder that refreshment and renewal is part of the dynamic of spiritual journey, and can lead to our giving greater honor and glory to God.
