  1. There is a Catholic parish in Hamlin, NY started back in the 80s when many other Catholic churches were closed. It is affectionately known as SEAS. It has a reputation of being a wonderful congregation.

  2. Elizabeth was a powerful, strong woman. She must have started her Catholic school in Boston when the Unitarians were in the majority there. I hope the Catholics and the Unitarians were mutually supportive, but in those days there was a great deal more religious chauvinism and exclusionary practices were common as is mentioned in the video.
