My Dear Parishioners:


I have unrelated thoughts that I want to share with you this week:

  • Thanks to all parishioners who prepared
    sandwiches this past week. When Caroline Castiglione delivered the prepared sandwiches to Emmanuel House, the director of Emmanuel House, Brett, complimented her for the quality and the quantity of sandwiches from St. Sebastian’s parish. Our parish is known for its generosity. Great job!
  • Bishop Tobin told me that St. Sebastian’s will receive a full-time pastor on July 1st. That is good news. I know some of you might have anxiety about the future of St. Sebastian’s. At least for the next 6 years St. Sebastian’s parish will not be yoked (joined) with another parish and share one pastor for two parishes. We will stay autonomous for the near future.
  • Our beautiful parish organ was taken down by the first nor’easter we experienced two weeks ago. The good news is that the organ is back up and running. The bad news is the cost of the repairs was $8,231.00. The better news is the cost of repair is being covered by the parish’s insurance company. The power surged during the nor’easter which burned out the UPS which then destroyed the tone
    generation computer server and the Rodgers pipe computer system. Too confusing for me to understand, all I know is the organ now works.

Have a good week…

Monsignor Montecalvo
