In Step With Tradition
Maria R. Bastone
IN STEP WITH TRADITION—Pokolenie Dance Group member Rae Le Mieux twirls with partner, Tyler Murtie, after a Mass celebrated by Cardinal Dolan at St. Stanislaus Mission, Pine Island, in commemoration of the 100th anniversary. The group, wearing traditional Polish clothing, performed in a tent set up for a reception after the June 23 Mass. More than 800 people attended the Mass—with televisions set up in the parish hall and in the tent to accommodate the overflow crowd—with some 600 remaining for the reception.
