64 F.3d 1 (1995)

Mary E. FEDERICO, etc., et al., Plaintiffs, Appellants, v. ORDER OF SAINT BENEDICT IN RHODE ISLAND, Defendant, Appellee.

United States Court of Appeals, First Circuit.

Decided August 29, 1995.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Dennis J. Roberts II, Providence, RI, for appellants.

Michael G. Sarli, with whom Gidley, Sarli & Marusak, Providence, RI, was on brief for appellee.

Before TORRUELLA, Chief Judge, BOUDIN and STAHL, Circuit Judges.

After careful review, we determine that there was no error and therefore affirm.
