    To many it's a part of their lives... A  place full of memories....a second home.... But a tragic event put those things on hold. St. Mary's church in Amarillo caught fire today and left nothing behind except the church bells.

From shock and dismay...to faith and hope... with their church taken away from them in a matter of minutes, the Saint Mary's community is coming together to rebuild.
  

Many parishioners we spoke with tell us the hardest thing to deal with is the fact their memories were stolen by a terrible tragedy.
  

The sanctuary where so many were married and baptized is nowgone...
  

But their faith is stronger than four walls. 

Classes at Saint Mary's school will resume in the morning.
