Mattei arranged to have Mass every summer Sunday on its deck as it floated on Woodcleft Canal on South Freeport's Nautical Mile. This Waterfront Mass continued for many years with Al Grover and his family as its primary hosts and OHR parishioners supplying the man (and woman) power.

Msgr. Mattei was also responsible for starting the OHR Bazaar, complete with rides, games, and of course those Zeppolis.  

A major renovation of the Church took place during Msgr. Mattei's leadership.
