STONY POINT, N.Y. -- A Catholic organization whose religious services were moved from its community center to a building on the grounds of a Salesian retreat center in Stony Point is fighting back, according to a report on lohud.com.

Dozens of families who belong to the Indian Knanaya Catholic Community have been holding protests outside the Mary Help of Christians chapel on the grounds of the Marian Shrine for several weeks, the lohud report said.

The group has occupied the cultural center on Willow Grove Road for 15 years and had used it for religious services and instruction.

Its members, who are emotionally and spiritually attached to the building, want to continue services and religious instruction there, the lohud report said.
