This is what we saw when we turned the corner from Varick onto Broome.
Here's a better look at the particulars of demolition.
We took a peek through each of the little diamond shaped plexiglass windows and this is what we saw:
The door that we used to go downstairs to the church hall..
And what is left of the steps on which we used to gather.
So we set up our little shrine of remembrance and hope:
- The souls of all, living and dead, whose lives had been touched by this church, especially the souls of those who passed during our struggle: Frankie Pretzels, Dalia Bulgaris, Danute Strout, Jurgis Aleliunas, Julia Martinho and Joe Zaccaria. We prayed for former Trustees Joy McAleer. We prayed for those who had suffered from ill health. We prayed for our most recent pastor, Father Eugene, and all the priests that came before him.
- We voiced our hope that the Holy Spirit would again concoct a parish in which the Mystery was so clearly present and where we all felt at home. And we promised to help.
You've given us enough to live on anywhere we go.
