Assembling the Marble Altar

St. Damien Catholic Church has been blessed to be the recipient of the interior furnishings of St. Michael's Catholic Church in Amsterdam, New York.  The pastor and parishoners donated the marble altar, the retablo with side altars, statutes, stained glass windows, pews and light fixtures.  The entire altar weighs approximately 4,000 pounds.  Men from the parish gathered on September 27, 2010, to assemble the altar.  Our present building will contain only the altar, some of the pews, and the holy water fonts.  When the funds are raised, we will be building a permanent church which will be adorned by all the furnishings so graciously donated. Our present building will then become our parish hall.

Thank you, Jesus for our beautiful new church.  St. Damien, ora pro nobis!!
