Dear Parishioners, I am very happy to report that the elevator has passed its inspection and is available for use at all of the Liturgies to be celebrated in the Church. It has been a long and arduous process, but well worth the wait. Please tell your neighbors and fellow parishioners who have not been able to come to Church that American Martyrs Church building and Sullivan Center is now handicap accessible. Thank you to all those who have made a contribution to this worthwhile project. ~ Fr. Frank
