Out of the Ashes: A Parish Community Rebuilds 
Conversation led by Sara Morin Barth at the LHC Annual Meeting on September 28, 2021

On February 22, 2021, the Corpus Christi Parish at Holy Rosary Church suffered a massive 4 alarm fire. Because of the heroic efforts of the Lawrence Fire Department, along with mutual aid from surrounding communities, the fire was knocked down and contained to the rectory with no loss of life. 

In a conversation led by LHC Board Secretary Sara Morin Barth, community members learned about the Parish’s history and importance, reflect upon what happened that bitter cold evening seven months prior, and discuss plans to rebuild and move forward.
