Transition Years



Fr. Peter Makk succeeded Fr. Novak as pastor from 1969 to July 1975.
Fr. James Hoffman was appointed temporary administrator for a year.
Fr. Pius Machalonis was pastor from 1976 until his death on November 21, 1982.
Fr. Vincent Lynch who was assistant chancellor of the diocese and secretary to the bishop, was named pastor on August 3, 1983 until 1986.

During these transition years, each pastor worked to provide for the spiritual enrichment of his flock. Masses were said, sacraments administered, and the children of the parish continued to be taught–although not without great changes taking place.
