Join Our Lady Queen of Angels Tomorrow Evening in Observance of Third Anniversary of Resistance
Tomorrow evening at 7PM, the parishioners of Our Lady Queen of Angels at 232 East 113th Street (between 2nd and 3rd Avenues) in East Harlem will observe the third anniversary of their struggle to save their parish.
Three years ago tomorrow night, these same parishioners were forcibly evicted from their church, and six of them were arrested for trespassing in their own sanctuary.
Please join them on the same sidewalk where the people of OLQA have gathered together with family, friends and supporters every single Sunday morning since the night the church was locked up.
You know that they have gathered there to pray together in all seasons, in rain and in snow, in the summer heat and in the chill of spring and fall, always keeping the faith, always hopeful, always trusting that their prayers will be heard and will be answered.
They will gather once again Friday night to pray together, to sing together, to be together as the struggle continues.
Let us all join them and support them in their continuing efforts to find a way to save the faith community of Our Lady Queen of Angels.
Please forward this message to family and friends.
