Anticipated by a hundred years...
The Graymoor story is a fascinating one, and is especially precious to us in this parish. The patronal title we took, Our Lady of the Atonement, is a title of the Blessed Mother with its origin at Graymoor. During their lifetime, Fr. Paul and Mother Lurana could not have imagined that the day would come when the Holy Father would open the doors so generously to Anglicans. But surely the coming of this day was assisted by their heavenly prayers, and we should all be grateful for their pioneering example.
So, to the Graymor Franciscan Friars and Sisters of the Atonement: Happy Anniversary!
