The Holy Name of Jesus Church in Windsor Terrace has stood on the corner of Prospect Park West and Prospect Avenue since 1878.
A recent renovation restored the church’s timeless design.
Nick Sisto, who’s been sitting in the church’s pews for decades, was there every step of the way, helping to bring the church back to its original beauty.
“I can’t believe I played a small part in something so big, in something so lasting, in something that meant so much to so many,” Sisto said.
Sisto credits the entire parish for making the restoration a reality and says the professionals did the heavy lifting.
“We were building something not temporary,” Sisto said. “We were building something for many generations to come after us.”
But Father Larry Ryan, Holy Name’s pastor, said Sisto was at the center of everything.
“He is tremendously well organized,” Father Ryan said. “He was in effect the project manager of this restoration.”
