The whole history of the construction of the Church of Saint Anne including the amazing restoration of side Altars following the fire in 1947 and the dismantling (in phases) of sections of the Holy Communion Rail until it disappeared. The progression of which can be seen in the video on the Parish’s web site. The Catholic restoration will restore it one day soon. ~Link ~ http://www.stannhoboken.com/index.php/honoring-our-past-building-our-future It’s still an amazing Sacred Architecture Church and the high Altar is still extant. I don’t Facebook but FYI there is an existing Facebook page for this Feast with the Entertainment schedule – Hope to see you on Procession
Also of note
One of the stops on the Procession is another rare treat. Equidistant between Saint Francis and Saint Anne off Jefferson( Alley ) St. is the private Catholic Chapel of Santa Febronia where Relics will be venerated on the Procession stop
This is the Chapel where we will again coordinate a special Traditional Rite Mass for the Feast of Saint Lucy on December 16th 2015 in this very special little Chapel , in Hoboken. In conjunction with this Santa Lucia Mass we will organize an end of the year fund raiser and speaker /talk for the post Sandy storm restoration of an electric heat an system to this Chapel, so please keep an eye out for that

The 1st Authentically Catholic School in the Archdiocese of Newark will open this September ! – A Traditional Catholic Middle School and High School
Sedes Sapientiae School
The School’s inaugural class will range from approximately 11 to 20 students. Launching this school has been a tremendously daunting undertaking, several years in the making. Those associated with the school are reaching out to all Restoration minded Catholics for all the support they can get, including prayers, and to “spread the word” about this exciting development.
The school has certain fixed expenses, yet a modest inaugural class. Until the enrollment numbers come up (which will take a few years), but will most assuredly grow quickly in this climate of needed Catholic Restoration. In the interim the financial situation will, of course, be precarious. Any financial assistance help now, at this critical moment, is more of a local rebuilding and Catholic restoration then anything else we can think of. The website provides more information about the School, and has a link for donations during their critical formation time-

Their Mission: To Form Minds and Hearts – Sedes Sapientiae School’s mission is to produce graduates formed by the greatest thinkers of Catholic and western civilization.
