This story made me very happy to see - my grandfather worked at St. Finbars as a custodian / handyman and it is truly a beautiful Church.

From the Brooklyn Eagle:

"When the Rev. Michael Louis Gelfant arrived at St. Finbar Catholic Church in June of 2010 to take his new job as the church’s administrator, he was struck by the number of parishioners who came up to him with the same impassioned plea.

“Please fix our church!” one parishioner after another implored him.

Built in 1910, the church had undergone a number of misguided renovations over the years, according to Gelfant, who said the work in the past was done in an attempt to “modernize” the beautiful old building at 138 Bay 20th St."
