Save Sacred Heart Vailsburg sign now

To: The Most Reverend John J. Myers, Archbishop of Newark

Your Excellency,

We, the undersigned, call on the Archdiocese of Newark to permit Sacred Heart Vailsburg Church to remain open and continue its central mission of hope and spirit in the Vailsburg section of Newark and the surrounding communities.

We respectfully request that you reconsider your decision to close this church and work toward a solution that preserves the community of Sacred Heart Vailsburg as it exists and adopt a plan that will foster its growth.

Its positive impact on the community cannot be measured in terms of dollars and cents but in lives touched and lives lived in harmony and in pursuit of justice, hope and dignity.

We call upon the Archdiocese of Newark to look past the finances and look to what Sacred Heart Vailsburg has accomplished through the decades and will continue to accomplish to improve the quality of life in Vailsburg Newark.

To often the sense of community has been lost not only in Vailsburg Newark, but in the entire Archdiocese of Newark. To close Sacred Heart Vailsburg Church would only add to this ever worsening problem.

As stated in Jeremiah 29:11 I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Please give the current and future residents of Vailsburg hope for a better future by keeping the doors of Sacred Heart open.

    Please do not close this Beautiful Church. I grew up going to Mass every week there, and was married in this Church. It still is the most beautiful Church around. I wish we had it in Florida. It can never be replaced.
