Rockaway Memorial For Polish Prez
Parishioners join for a formal service outside the church on Sunday afternoon. Right. A personal memorial to Polish President Lech Kaczynski and his wife, Maris, stands outside St. Rose of Lima Church on Beach 84 Street. Many Rockaway residents came to honor the couple, who were killed this week in an airplane crash in Russia while on their way to a ceremony memorializing the WW II massacre at the Katyn Forest. Many other Polish leaders were among the 96 who died in the crash.
