<quoted text>Hopefully, after 5 years, the DOB will decide to close more parishes which are unnecessary to exist in the first place. Some parishes should close in Buffalo, Dunkirk, Batavia, Niagara Falls, and other places as well.No need for the Lay Parish Administrators! Close some more parishes and you will have extra priests available for the necessary parishes.
Has anyone applied for the Ransomville parish?

Agree. She would be happy to knock down every Polish parish in the diocese.

After all it is not a parish church.
If we wanted to follow Christ....yes, we would!

Fr. Badding did not vacate Ransomville parish yet. Be patient! The summer hut priest will apply for that parish since it is very close to his 'retreat cottage.'

Priest can retire at age 70, they do not have to stay past 70 unless they desire to do so. Malone has made it clear that he does not intend to change this at the present time.

The Romans destroyed the temple. It was useless to them and so were the people. Without the temple they would cause less trouble so it's best to demolish so people would forget. Not very nice of them. But Christ prevailed. He wanted a church. I am not sure he wants today's clergy or today's catholics.

Even Hitler spared the bombing of Rome for its cultural and historic value.
But Rome's churches at this time actually had people attending them. today in Buffalo, it's a different story.#5 people at the last mass at St. Ann's the Jesuits saw the handwriting and on the wall a long time ago and pulled out.

Tourists go to many of them but Italy, like Europe, is not known for Mass attendance.

I think you are confusing the terminology of church in this case.

There are so many beautiful churches in Europe , east and west, that even if there was only I person in each one of them it would be enough.

They are getting rid of all the fine but traditional looking churches in the diocese. But as soon as the artifacts go on sale the buzzards are circling, Why? To add to somebody's private collections?

After all they went through, it's surprising that anyone goes to church at all. The eastern Europeans are proud to go to church now.
