CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- A local Catholic said she is praying for those in Paris after the Notre Dame fire.
Taylor Stukenborg has been going to St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church her whole life. She said she will never forget Notre Dame's beauty when she visited while in college.
Stukenborg said the timing of the fire makes it even more striking for the Church.
"I think especially the timing of this tragedy is hard leading us into Holy Week," said Stukenborg. "But I know we pray for those affected by this tragedy and continue to think for the town of Paris."
Stukenborg said she is sure the Notre Dame's beauty will remain even after the fire.
