BAY HEAD, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – Just in time for Christmas, a church on the Jersey Shore damaged by superstorm Sandy has once again opened its doors.

All Saints Episcopal Church in Bay Head was flooded in the Oct. 29, 2012 storm and just reopened last weekend.

“It was the best Christmas present we could get,” Rev. Neil Turton told WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell.

“The damage was immense,” said Rev. Turton. “It was a struggle emotionally and spiritually.”

Turton said this Christmas is particularly joyful.
