Incendie à Notre-Dame - Fire at Notre Dame Cathedral

INCENDIE À NOTRE-DAME

 Fire at Notre Dame Cathedral April 15th 2019


The world mourns alongside Parisians and the French after Monday's tragic news. Notre-Dame de Paris went up in flames yesterday evening, destroying centuries of history. We are deeply saddened and shocked by this cultural and historical loss. We have received an outpouring of sentiments from our community of Francophones and Francophiles here in Denver. The local news stations visited yesterday to hear our thoughts but there wasn't much we could add to the conversation of this tragedy--it has left us speechless. Below are linked our director, Martin Lafitte's comments to Fox31 News and 9News Denver.
