City of Churches

Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Church in Redhook, Brooklyn was on the verge of bankruptcy when Father Claudio arrived, and then Hurricane Sandy made things even worse. Anthony Mangano visits the church to learn how the church was brought back to life by Father Claudio and the members of Koinonia John the Baptist.

Join us for a new season of City of Churches on Wednesday’s at 8 PM!
