In a telephone interview with Edwin Torres, chairman of the Committee to Save St. Brigid's, he told us that the Committee will be holding a fundraiser/ celebration at Connolly's, 121 West 45th St. on June 18th, at 7 p.m. sharp. This will be a reprise of 2006's Bards for St. Brigid's, with musicians like Larry Kirwan, and authors like Peter Quinn and Malachy McCourt. The proceeds will be donated to the legal defense fund. "We just want to say thank you to all the people who made this possible and who, by extension, are members of our parish."

From our perspective, we can't wait for the next Mass to be celebrated at the Famine Church of the Lower East Side. This is proof that miracles do exist, and God is indeed hope.
