Downed tree after storm - June 6, 2010
The tree was removed on June 11, with the help of chainsaws and lots of heavy equipment.
Strong storms blew through the Boston area on the afternoon of Sunday, June 6, and took out a large tree in the church's front garden. Thankfully, there was no damage to the building or to any of our two- or four-footed denizens. (Photos by Fr. Wood.)
