The Fight for Our Church: A Visitor's View

On February 28, the day after our church was taken from us, a young man from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada came to New York to audition for the Juilliard School of Music. He encountered Our Lady of Vilnius and joined us in our vigil on March 3. The man, Taddes Korris, writes about his experience among us in a post titled Lithanians fight for their NY church. The piece is captioned "Edmonton student witnesses an ethnic congregation's solidarity with its tempered faith" and appears on the "Western Catholic Reporter," a Canadian site.

I found the perspective interesting and the article very moving and encouraging.

Taddes, I hope you get the gig and follow Alekna and Minkstimas to Juilliard. It will be a pleasure to have you among us again.
