St. Christopher's Puts St. Boniface Purchase on Hold
St. Christopher-Ottilie Director Bob McMahon alleviated the contention between his organization and several Sea Cliff residents when on Monday, July 21 he informed the Sea Cliff Planning Board that St. Christopher's will no longer look to purchase a building from St. Boniface, but will attempt to build a school on their own campus.
Poor Boxes Pilfered From St. Patrick's
Sometime after the cleaning crew left on Sunday night and before the church opened at 6 a.m. Monday morning, a burglar broke into St. Patrick's Church in Glen Cove by smashing through a stained glass window as old as the 104-year-old church itself. He found himself in the reconciliation room, which is never locked, but for some reason, unable to open the door. The burglar decided he had to break through, so he gouged a huge hole in the wall with a railroad spike, pulled the pins out of the hinges of the door and pulled the heavy door off its track in order to get into the church proper. From there he stole the money from six poor boxes and candle offering boxes, taking one of the boxes with him.
Anything Goes at Glen Cove High School
