Capturing emotions on canvas

This painting of a teddy and toy firetruck is one of Tom's personal favorites.


Assistant Director for Faithful Response, Pr. Tom Taylor, who spent months as a chaplain at Ground Zero, has found it very therapeutic to paint. He has worked out his feelings and emotions of seeing the devastation firsthand by expressing himself on canvas. Pr. Taylor has donated several of his paintings to the LDRNY’s Comfort and Renew Center and its Faithful Response office, where they proudly hang.  Pr. Taylor is from Grace Lutheran Church in North Bellmore, Long Island.
