Lake effect snow greets Saint Casimir's

To-day there assembled for the eighth consecutive Sunday, since Richard Lennon took possession of St. Casimir's parish property after a Mass of Eviction, Saint Casimir's parish outside their closed church. More than three dozen members, and their friends, stood together in a Notre Dame style huddle by a makeshift shrine festooned with national flags. Some of their more timid relatives stayed in their cars to avoid the snow, the wind, and the 10°F temperature.
For where there are two or three gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.Matthew xviii.20.
But the hardy faithful prayed, sang christmas carols, talked of future gatherings and reaffirmed their intentions to continue to meet [there and elsewhere], and to actively pursue to have rescinded the current ordinary's programme of seizure and eviction of their parish and others. For though, as the photographs of flags show, they are of different nations, they are one people of the same faith. They are fervent and loyal Catholics. This they do for their parish and yours.
