Last December, Cleveland's Slavic Village neighborhood was devestated by the murder of a well-known and well-loved Catholic priest, Father William Gulas of St. Stanislaus Church. Yesterday, the Franciscan student who pleaded guilty to the crime was sentenced to 24 years in prison. Daniel Montgomery had been working with Father Gulas. In some ways, the close working relationship between shooter and victim made the crime all the more disturbing to the surrounding community. We've invited Richard Konisiewicz in today. He works for the Cleveland Institute of Art, but he lives In Slavic Village, is president of the Warszawa Historic District Association, and is a member of St. Stan's parish. On today's 90.3 @ 9, ideastream's April Baer asked him how the community is coping.
