Features | March 15: the feast day of St. Clement Hofbauer

People & places | Windfall makes new lighting possible for OLPH Basilica

By Father John McKenna, C.Ss.R.

Recently the Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Brooklyn got a delightful surprise, a wonderful windfall. It turned out that for a very long time we’d been paying a utility bill that wasn’t ours. The power company, Con Edison, returned a large amount of money to the parish, just at the right time, during our 125th Jubilee Year.
