Church of the Savior welcomes hundreds of boys from Bergen Catholic


     On February 1, we at Church of the Savior had the unplanned and unexpected privilege of offering hospitality and sanctuary to the entire staff and student body of Bergen Catholic High School, located just across the street from us.  An incident had occurred there that morning that necessitated the immediate evacuation and relocation of everyone present at school that day.  For many years we have had a long-standing agreement that, should there be any emergency either at Bergen Catholic or at Church of the Savior, each would offer a place of refuge for the other.


      And so in the bitter cold of that February morning, our back parking lot was filled with Bergen Catholic boys and staff, most of whom had left their coats and jackets behind.  With military precision, quietly and in order, the Bergen Catholic staff led their boys into our building, where they were all welcomed by Pastor Nagle.  One or two bus-loads of boys were sent off to St. Joseph’s in Oradell.  Most were led inside here.  They filled the sanctuary.  They filled the multi-purpose room.  They filled the balcony, and finally the three upstairs classrooms.  They were well behaved, well supervised, and very polite and respectful guests.  All this occurred during our regular nursery school day, which continued seamlessly, under the able direction of Mrs. Hayman, without any interruption or problem.


      When the emergency was over, our guests returned to Bergen Catholic to finish the rest of their day.  We thank our Lord for the joy and the privilege of being an “ark,” offering a place of warmth, sanctuary and safety to God’s people at Bergen Catholic.


We received the following letter of thanks:  Dear Pastor Nagle:  Thank you.  We at Bergen Catholic are appreciative of the hospitable manner in which you and your staff took us in during today’s critical incident.  I can only imagine what you and your staff pictured our bringing hundreds of teenagers to you would be like.  Know that we stand ready to be of like assistance to you.  Thank you again.  Sincerely, Brother Brian Walsh, President
