RUMSON – Half of Holy Cross Roman Catholic Church is gone – demolished to make way for the new.

It took a little getting used to for church officials who had difficulty seeing the church – with its long history – intentionally being torn down.

  1. This is a difficult time seeing our beautiful Church torn down and having to celebrate mass in a gym. I have to give credit to Father Manning who has continued to lead with grace and faith. When all is done we will have a very lovely, traditional Church.

  2. I agree, this is trying, but personally I have faith that the Church will be beautiful and better than ever!

  3. I was more than a little dismayed when I went to mass one Sunday and saw half of our Church missing. Even though I knew it was coming it was a shock. That being said, Father Manning has lead with grace, dignity and candor through a challenging time. I applaud his efforts and look forward to the new Chuch being ready, hopefully or next year’s Feast of the Holy Cross!
