Saint John Kanty Church and its Alumni Committee are excited to announce the Mary Project.
The Immaculate Conception statue, which has stood at the corner of Broadway and Brownell for almost a half-century, has deteriorated to the point that repair is not possible.
Since the church’s all-year Saint John Kanty School reunion in 2012, the Saint John Kanty Alumni Committee has met periodically to explore different projects where alumni could help the church in a meaningful way. The Broadway and Brownell corner is a special place to all alumni. It is the location of the church’s original school where Mary has served as a beacon of hope for the neighborhood through the years. “The Mary Project” will replace the Immaculate Conception statue with a new one, enhance the landscaping around it and move the cornerstone of the original school into this space.
