St. Stan's Vigilkeepers Keep Spirit of Parish Going
ADAMS, Mass. — The chill's starting to creep back into the church, and the dozens of parishioners were buttoned up in coats as they slid into the pews of the darkened nave.
The St. Stanislaus Kostka vigilkeepers meet regularly to share news. The group of 60 or more regulars have been keeping a round-the-clock vigil in the historic church for nearly a year.
It was the waning of Day 326 and the regular Monday night meeting of the vigilkeepers at St. Stanislaus Kostka Church. The goal of their vigil is simple: Keep the historic and fabulously decorated Polish church open as a place of worship.
