Summer is an "ideal time" for St. Brigid's renovations

In his most recent letter to friends and supporters (dated June 19), Edwin Torres, chairman of the Committee to Save St. Brigid's, said that the construction manager, architects and contractors recently met to plan the first stage of the renovations, "which should start shortly." As he noted, "The summer months when the school is closed is an ideal time for the major construction." He continued: "I am confident that in ... no time St. Brigid's Church will be restored to her original splendor and we will ... realize what we almost lost."



  1. Not gonna happen, folks, I'm afraid. The building is too far gone to be rehabilitated in a "cost-effective" way. They delays, I think, are just intended to make that news go down easier when it eventually spills out.

    And it's too bad. Great building whose loss harms the community.

  2. This wouldn't surprise me — if it's determined the church can't be saved.

    I hope we're wrong.
