Catherine Laboure Program to close 8.31.2017

The students were taught at the former elementary school of St. Frances Cabrini parish, Dyker Heights, which I photographed in 2010.

Photos from other sources

Skilled photographers have added many pictures of the churches and schools of Brooklyn to the immense collection on
For example, when one goes to the Flickr group pool "Catholic School Architecture" and searches within this group for "brooklyn," the result is astounding.
Please see the link HERE.
I particularly applaud the work of Matthew X. Kiernan, who has added many photos to that group. Please see his photo stream HERE. He has uploaded more than 14,000 photos, and they are searchable. Type the name of the parish in the search box, and you will probably find better photos than what I have offered on my blogs.

St. Ann, Vinegar Hill

I saw St. Ann's church in Vinegar Hill years before I began taking photos for this blog. The church designed by Patrick Keely was demolished, and now a fight has arisen about development of the property.  One of the later pastors was Fr. Fursey O'Toole.
Link to an article with photos in The Brooklyn Daily Eagle 1.25.2017 HERE.
