Mary, almost all of the Church decorations are new. They were part of the redecoration finished in 1997. I know Father Dooley, we met when I went to the rededication of the church. Father Dooley is very interested in understanding the emmigration patterns of the parishioners, so once you confirm the connections to the parish, please send him your information along with any family stories you have documented.
I am glad to know Father Dooley is still there. I will write to him again!
