A point of clarification.......

There are no nuns living on the premises of St. Hedwig Church. There is no heating equipment in the basement of the church. There are steam tunnels that bring radiated heat from an adjacent central boiler room.

Please check your information before you publish

Thank you,

I was with my mom at her job..then I see a helicopter. It was hubering around. My mom figured there was a fire becuase they usually huber around when something happened. About 10 minutes later..she said our church (St. Hedwigs) caught on fire. I was debistated becuase we've been going to that church for a while. It scares me that it caught on fire becuase its GODS home and Its right by my School.

Thank you,
