Do you just copy/paste that mantra from your previous posts? Specifically which churches in those cities do YOU think should be forced to close?

That would be nice. Or, attend in person at one of the fine Byzantine rite parishes here in WNY. We are fortunate to have them!

St. Elizabeth's? They are the largest parish (# families) in Dk/Fredonia and have a Spanish ministry. The building seems quite solid, too. Why should they close?

Vladimir Putin knows his catechism better than the JF&G people. A friend of mine told me that in Moscow the Communist government is restoring churches where masses are offered also in Spanish, Polish, French and Italian.
shame on them

The Bishop travels from Portland, Maine to Buffalo. It's probably more miles than between Youngstown and Lewiston. Oh, our priests are soooo overworked.

Only one. Did Putin rebuild all the churches that Stalin and communist murderers demolished during their 70 years of rule? Close more churches here in Buffalo Diocese.
