The statue of the Blessed Mother & Child is located on the Post Place side of the church.
On October 6th, the start of Respect Life weekend, after the 5:30 mass, our chaplain lead a prayer service and blessing of the statue. Attending the ceremony were Father Joe, Father Ray, Deacon Earle, State Deputy Thomas Ciborski, State Secretary Herb Meyer, State Chairman Edward Marks, the Catholic Daughters, the knights and parishoners. After the blessing, we had a small get together -light dinner- in the auditorium in the school. We are the 171st council in New Jersey to dedicate a statue to the unborn.
