“The bishop, with this rededication, shows that this church is supposed to be open in waiting for the second coming of Jesus Christ,” said pastoral associate, Sister Frauke Tinat, from the community of Koinonia John the Baptist. “This great grace has come to Red Hook because the field is ripe for the New Evangelization,” Bishop DiMarzio told the congregation. “Today we give thanks and pledge ourselves for the work that needs to be done.”
