The Parish Council of St. Therese of Lisieux Catholic Church in Montauk has agreed that the congregation's much-loved church building should be replaced with a new church of similar design. The Tudor-style building, on South Essex Avenue, is a downtown Montauk landmark.
The decision, which has been accepted by the church's pastor, the Rev. John C. Nosser, was made at a meeting of the council on April 19. The cost has been estimated at over $1 million.
Helene Tallo of Montauk knits about 120 baby blankets a year, at least 12 per month. They are given to every newborn infant patient at her son’s pediatric medical practice at the Children’s Health Center in Fort Wayne, Ind. Most of the tiny patients leave their first visit already swaddled in the blue, mint green, purple, or pink coverings.
