My first visit to St. Patrick’s Pro-Cathedral has rocked my world. I stepped inside, and I could have cried – it’s almost identical to the inside of my Lolo and Lola’s church, which I thought I’d never see again after their funeral this April 2022. Even more precious are new friends found, and friends rediscovered who I thought I might never see again, and especially not in Newark.
So – even after only one experience with the people of this parish, I know this cathedral is special. As a result, I am going to keep returning to complete this perspective. This goes against my absolute rule that mass sketches start and end within one mass service. No, this is not a mass sketch which is complete in one mass, as all my others have been. So, please, be patient! I’ll keep showing you my progress as I go.
