Raffaella Stroik, RIP Raffaella Stroik, RIP

Missing since Monday, the body of Raffaella Maria Stroik, a dancer for the St. Louis Ballet and daughter of Catholic architect, Duncan Stroik, was found in Mark Twain Lake this morning. 

Remnant readers may know of Duncan Stroik through his architectural work, notably the chapel at Thomas Aquinas College. He has also been a guest lecturer at the Roman Forum's Summer Symposium. 

Circumstances surrounding her death are largely unknown at this time, but please, in your charity, join the Archdiocese of St. Louis in prayer for the repose of Raffaella's soul, and for the comfort of Christ and Our Lady to see the Stroik family through this incomprehensible tragedy.
