On Friday morning May 28, I discovered the statue of the Blessed Mother in the Friary yard was knocked over and broken.
As you walk up the steps on the 84th street side of the church this statue of the Blessed Mother is there to greet you as you are about to enter the church. This is a very old statue and has been in the yard for more than 30 years, it may even have been from the original church.
Our friary yard is open for various ministry functions during the summer and warm weather months and this statue was such a nice part of the grounds.
Many of our parishioners and other friends of St Adalbert found out about this incident through social media and want to help us restore the statue. There is a Go Fund Me account set up for this purpose and hope we can restore the statue soon.
Thank You for your generous donations.
