Our Lady of Vilnius Contents Appraised
This was such a jolt to me that I am blogging this "The Villager" item in its entirety. From Volume 76, Number 47 April 18 - 24, 2007, Scoopy's Notebook:
"Church pickings: We happened to chat with a private appraiser waiting to go into Our Lady of Vilnius Church on Broome St. on Monday who told us that he was going to do a “quick walk-through” of the shuttered church with someone from the archdiocese. As for what the archdiocese will do with the church’s contents, as well as the church itself, he had no idea."
Someone told me that, under canon law, that it was illegal to remove contents of a closed church once an appeal has been submitted. What are they planning, and when do they propose to do it? I hope that Scoopy is around when it happens.
