Local reaction to Notre Dame Cathedral fire

Raleigh County

Locals with ties to the Notre Dame Cathedral are devastated by the fire.

Lisa Hinkle is a teacher of St Francis De Sales Parish, a catholic school in Beckley. She has visited the cathedral three times and has seen its historic beauty.

Hinkle explains this is a hard time for Catholics, especially given this happened right before Easter. 

“This is a sign for us that we can rebuild, and we can get stronger from this,” Hinkle said.

Hinkle also said she will always have her memories of the cathedral, and will share her stories of being there during holy week.
