However, construction finally began this week on the much talked about Claremont Corporate Center smack next door to us across Morris Ave. Cranes could be seen uprooting trees and the sounds of backhoes and jackhammers provide "background music" to our silence and prayer.
The Sisters' attendance along with that of other concerned neighbors did have a positive impact on the final plans. Most notably the current intersection traffic problem will be addressed. Parking lot lights will be required to face down and sensor lights instead of light on all night inside the building will be installed.
This new project will also have a practical impact on the ability of our friends who come for Rosary Sunday, Christmas Eve Mass and special events to find parking! For many, many years, the previous owners were kind enough to let us use their parking lot. We are praying that the new owners will be equally as generous.
