Aftermath of Ida
First off, we are thankful that no one was injured by the collapse of the façade of the steps that occurred during the heavy rains that fell on September 1st.
The Church is open and the regular schedule of Masses is being celebrated. Please do not use the main entrance on Roberts Avenue. It is still cordoned off by yellow caution tape. Please use the entrance from the parking lot or the Mahan Avenue entrance. The area is clear of debris and we hope to be able to open the side walk as soon as possible. As soon as we get the all clear from the insurance company we'll reopen the sidewalk.
Water is the plague of any building and water always seeks its way. The volume of water was too overwhelming and the façade of the steps gave way causing it to collapse.
My thanks to NSC Abatement for getting here so quickly and for removing the debris.
Thank you for your patience and understanding .
Our Lady of the Assumption, pray for us!
St. Mary, Star of the Sea, Pray for us!
