One of my friends got married there. Very pretty church, too bad.

That is so sad! I used to teach at FXW's HNC campus. My sister's family attends that church, and my nephew goes to CCD there, too.

Dannie, the damage ended up not being as severe as initially thought. Still, the news last night was littered with stories about upcoming weddings. The church was closed for nine months due to renovation. It only recently reopened to the public.
