Thanks parish for sharing

To the editor:

Thanks to the parishioners and staff of Ss. Peter & Paul parish on West Main Street in Rochester for opening their church to the community through the Landmark Society tour on May 14. We were impressed by the magnificence and beauty of Ss. Peter & Paul Church and by the dedication of those who made the renewal of this gem possible.

While admiring the symbols of the Catholic faith in Ss. Peter & Paul’s, I felt a sense of pride in the Catholic Church and a strong desire to share this faith with others. I thought what a wonderful gift it would be to our community if this church could be open every day for adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and as a place for evangelization. While the realities of the day would make this a formidable challenge, I must believe that those who so creatively restored the beauty of this church are up to the challenge of imagining people of all walks of life, at any time of the day, entering a place of beauty and peace to establish or strengthen a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Thank you again for sharing your magnificent church with our community.
