Today the interns went on two separate tours of two churches in Whitney Pier. The first was St. Mary’s Polish church which burned a few years ago but was re-built. The second church that the interns had a tour of was Holy Ghost Ukrainian Catholic Church. This was more of an in depth tour with the parish priest Rev. Roman Dusanowskyj showing them around the property.

Father Dusanowskyj mentioned that Holy Ghost was the only Ukrainian Catholic church east of Montreal. How neat is that! Both buildings were gorgeous sights to see and the Polish church was a beautiful remodelling of a building that was lost in a fire.
