Father Kolasiński was the center of contention. He was removed from his pastorate and suspended from the priesthood on November 30, 1885, for a variety of alleged reasons. Riots and disturbances and mayhem followed. Young John Lewicki, 24, was killed in one such riot on Christmas Day of 1885.(Submitted on May 6, 2021, by J.T. Lambrou of New Boston, Michigan.)
