After attacking the very traditions that have made St. Lucy's Church in Newark, New Jersey, the vibrant institution she is today, Archbishop John J. Myers then set his sights on our quiet and unassuming Pastor, Monsignor Joseph Granato. The Archbishop wants to 'reward' Monsignor Granato's 54 YEARS OF SELFLESS DEVOTION to the spiritual guidance of his flock...by going back on his word and EVICTING Monsignor from the rectory that has been his home for more than half a century.
It has now become painfully obvious that the Archbishop would like to undo all the good works that Monsignor Granato has accomplished over 54 years in a clear attempt to destroy an honorable man...as punishment/retribution for the St. Lucy's community's speaking out for its own survival.
