As discussed at the April Federation meeting, Bob Tringali, Past Grand Knight of Our Ladies of Victory, Council 14483, Harrington Park, brought up a situation with St. John Church, Newark.
PGK Tringali is familiar with the situation as the Brothers of the council have been feeding the homeless at their soup kitchen four times per year for the past five years. During this time, the Pastor has never asked the council for any financial assistance.
The Situation: St. John is the oldest parish in the Archdiocese and is having a major problem with a wall separating. The engineering study alone is over $13,000. Any council willing to help pay for this is welcome. So far, Council 14483 has donated $1000. The address for donations is: St. John, 22 Mulberry Street, Newark, NJ 07102.
