Military Group Joins Battle To Save St. Ann's Church

A meeting tonight at 7 at St. Columba-Brigid Church to strategize on saving beautiful St. Ann's Church, which has been condemned by the Buffalo diocese, is shaping up to have a touch of military might.

Organizers received a heartening message: "The Steuben Society of America Samuel Helm Unit #144 is with you!"

....as history nerds will recall, marched into Valley Forge and built George Washington's tattered and starving and desperate soldiers into a force to be reckoned with.

Von Steuben was educated at Jesuit schools. Surely the St. Ann's forces will be well served by the spirit of this great Prussian warrior who changed the course of the American Revolution.

Although we hope it does not come to this:
