Elsewhere ...

A symposium on the legacy of Irish-American architect Patrick Charles Keely (designer of Toledo's St. Francis de Sales and Sandusky's St. Peter & Paul churches) will be held Friday, March 21, 2014 in New York City at the Time-Life building.  For full details, contact Donald M. Reynolds of the Monuments Conservancy, phone (212) 643-8730.  This is a sequel to last year's Keely conference.

And in Buffalo, New York, the "Buffalo Mass Mob" brings together groups of people to attend Mass at historic Catholic churches which might otherwise be overlooked.  Their website is HERE.
