PERSONAL, MESSAGE To All Those of St. Cecelia's Parish from Sirio Tonelli Main Altar of St. Cecelia's — Designed by Sirio Tonelli It was my privilege and honor, together with foremost Italian marble workers, sculptors and iron work artists, to design and create the interior ap- 'pointments of your magnificent new edifice. It was an inspiring pleasure for :j me to plan and work with Msgr. Gearen and members of your Advisory Board, and then a thrilling procedure to see our joint thoughts and ideas translated » into reality in some of the foremost church studios of Italy, where this in- spired craftsmanship is handed 'down from Father to Son, and then to his sons. I trust that St. Cecelia's will remain your house of worship for years without end, and will be a haven of peace throughout many more generations of time.
