“It was a really beautiful and wonderful celebration,” said Father Robert Adamo, the pastor of St. Ephrem.

The entire church has been repainted and equipped with a new sound system and lighting, and a new icon of St. Ephrem was installed.

“We were able to raise funds through the parish community to help us restore the church,” Adamo said. “It obviously meant a lot to them.”

After the Mass, refreshments were served in the parking lot next to the school yard.
