That's what I remember from my time there - a good amount of West Side pride even with the economic woes. I was there in the mid-90's for a couple of years. Holy Cross was an active place as I recall, though I can't remember the pastor's name. Fr. Rigoli was the pastor at Holy Angels. Both places were welcoming communities, I hope that's still true.

Wasn't Immaculate Conception " welcoming" ??
What does welcoming mean anyway?

Italians are always creative. In front of the railway station of Padua, a new sign - and in English - for short term parking reads:“ONLY KISS AND PARK”(15 minutes!). One policeman noted:“It seems that is the only road sign Italians observe!”

Holy Cross could be one of the ugliest in anywhere not just in Buffalo. Proof that nobody has any taste anymore. No wonder they want to tear down St. Ann and are happy to have St. Gerard rot. What a great group of losers! And we worry that there is a priest shortage? Too bad they don't all leave immediately. There is no shortage of lazy, louzy ones.
Yeah, what is the story on the move of St. Gerard to Georgia?

The few people I knew from the I C were nice enough, but I had simply found a home elsewhere. By "welcoming" I mean a worship community that isn't closed in on itself. There are parish communities which are less open to strangers than others.

The 1st Anniversary medal of Pope Francis misspelled the word JESUS. Thank God Latin is the official language of the Vatican!

The Divine Mercy Conference was poorly attended. It was apparently a 'divine fisco'.A lady from West Seneca reported about it.

Fading away. John Radice' Spiritus Christi appears to be fading away, just like the hair color of his parishioners.

Rumor has it that you are working on buying Father David a church. Is this true, Lavern?
Will you be furnishing it with all of your Holy relics, statues, baptismal fonts, pictures, etc that you acquired through out the years?
Does that also include the 400,000$ that she and the pedophile laundered from the previous parish?

Bonjour a tous!
Could someone tell me what's happening in the parishes on the West Side? I was there many years ago for awhile, around Immaculate Conception, Holy Cross and Holy Angel's parishes. Merci.
Holy Cross is an active Parish, Immaculate is closed, don't know much about HA.

Turning a blind eye is an idiom describing the ignoring of undesirable information.

The phrase to turn a blind eye is attributed to an incident in the life of Admiral Horatio Nelson. Nelson was blinded in one eye early in his Royal Navy career. In 1801, during the Battle of Copenhagen cautious Admiral Sir Hyde Parker, in overall command of the British forces, sent a signal to Nelson's forces giving him discretion to withdraw. Naval orders were transmitted via a system of signal flags at that time. When this order was given to the more aggressive Nelson's attention, he lifted his telescope up to his blind eye, said "I really do not see the signal", and his forces continued to press home the attack.[1][2]
