Hurricane Sandy Update

The recent storm which devastated many parts of the Carribean, Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern United States, certainly left its mark on St. Frances Cabrini Parish and its neighbors.  Many of our parishioners were without electricity for days and some sections of Levittown felt the severe power of the storm as wind knocked down trees, some of which landed on homes and cars, resulting in extensive damage.  Fences were blown down and houses lost roof shingles and siding.

The Parish campus was no exception.  As most parishioners are aware, the entire campus was without power for several days.  Partial power was restored on Wednesday evening, but with only one of the three electrical phases restored, the church was without full lighting and heat for the Masses on Thursday, the Feast of All Saints, as well as all the weekend Masses.  Full power was finally restored late Sunday morning.    In addition to the loss of electrical power, the heavy winds damaged some roof shingles and aluminum capping on the church, rectory garage and Monsignor Woods Hall buildings.  The insurance adjustor has been working to assess the cost of necessary repairs and temporary measures have been taken to ensure that no further damage is done.

We continue to pray for the many people who were affected by the storm, many of whom sustained extensive damage to property or lost their homes completely, as well as those who continue to be without power.
