Some of the Restoration Workshop Members with items they restored
May, 2009
Msgr Bradley and Jean Kubilus. Msgr Edward Bradley was instrumental in this project. He gathered the objects for us and gave us the biographies of the deceased priests. In this picture, Jean is giving him a cross she made for him as a thank you gift.
Items restored by the Restoration Workshop. They were given to the candidates for ordination into the priesthood in the Archdiocese of Newark, New Jersey in May 2009.
Crucifix restored by Restoration Workshop. This crucifix came to us in pieces and we were able to fix it. On the back was a handwritten label with the name of the priest and the date of his ordination. The date was 52 years to the day of the candidates date of ordination!
Artwork made by the group. The group also made artwork for the candidates using found objects and decorating photograms of religious statuary. The gold frames were made from the foil from the potted Christmas pointsettias that decorated the church!
