Church Restoration in Rochester, New York

The church of Our Lady of Victory/St Joseph in Rochester, New York, recently celebrated both its sesquicentennial anniversary, and the completion of a church restoration project. Some photos of the dedication mass, celebrated by the Bishop Rochester, H.E. Salvatore Matano, can be found on the diocesan website: The service featured an orchestral mass by Gounod, Latin and English chant, choral works by Bruckner and Stravinsky, and a Gregorian Te Deum.

The restoration was overseen by Granda Liturgical Arts; highlights include the addition of an altar rail, marble flooring in the sanctuary, complete restoration of the statuary and altars, newly commissioned paintings for the sanctuary and apse, and a baptistery. Thanks to reader David O’Donnell for sending in these pictures.
