In 2006, the DC Government determined that a shelter for the homeless was the best use for the historic Gales School at 65 Massachusetts Ave., NW. The city was concerned about not only renovating the decrepit structure but also providing services for the community. After failing to sell the facility, the District requested proposals for a long term lease. Out of three applicants, the proposal submitted by Central Union Mission (where St. Brendan’s in the City worships) was selected. Following a lengthy lease negotiation, this July, the District Council agreed to release the property from government use and to allow the Mission to lease it for 40 years with a subsequent 25-year extension available.
The fundraiser was an unbelievable success. Just over $200,000 was donated in cash and pledges for the purpose of building a primary school at St. Nicholas. An overwhelmed Tony Moscati exclaimed, “To God be the glory! We are thrilled to be building a school at St. Nicholas. The August 20 ground¬breaking that the Archbishop announced in faith will become a reality. We now have about 2/3 of the construction costs for Phase I of the school and every expectation that God will continue to provide.”
