Why do you need more priests in the burbs? To do what? They have so much staff they don't know what to do with themselves now.
They should be spreading the Gospel where the Gospel is needed not just be caretakers for the rich. If they are so busy why do they have so much free time. There are plenty of people who need to be taught the faith in Buffalo and Niagara Falls. Two of the poorest cities in all of USA. I would suggest pilgrimages to those poor areas instead of only visiting the casinos and bars.
Besides casinos and bars, you forgot the famous summer villas by the lakes which are most of the time 'secret sex houses.'

Even sex requires ambition, drive and some effort. Some are too lazy even for that.

Why do you want to know? What business is it of yours?
What goes on in one's bedroom should stay in their bedroom.

Perhaps you would like to join in under those bedsheets?
Take pictures, videos.......?

No, they only get extra money for living expenses. i.e. good living. Ask Freddy.
They schedule 7 masses each weekend to make sure that 'cash cow' continues to provide the necessary money for the summer villas and randevous.

WISDOM WE HAVE HEARD ON HIGH – We applaud Darius G. Pridgen, Ellicott Dist. Council Member, and State Sen. Tim Kennedy for taking up the cause of saving the beautiful and historic S. Ann’s Church from the wrecking ball.

If there is money for those historic grain elevators, why not for historic AND beautiful St. Ann's. Shame on the diocese and all the Bishops and all their men for not caring. That will be history too. Forever Shame.

Could someone out there tell me what's going on with the All Souls Day offering? We've been told that if we list names on the lines that are on the outside of our envelope along with a donation, natch, the names of the deceased will be published in the bulletin and prayers will be said for them. It doesn't say Masses, it says prayers although some will surely interpret the envelope as being for Masses. I would like to put my mother, father, brother, aunt and friend's names on the envelope, but I was rooked once already when I paid $400 for a chandelier that was supposed to be in my mother's memory with prayers being said for her each time the lights were turned on. Fr. Nycz never made public my mother's name or the names that went with the other nine $400 chandeliers so how exactly are they being prayed for? I have my doubts he will publish in the bulletin the names on the envelopes either. Who gets the money from these envelopes? Anybody know? I just hate to be played for a fool again. You know the old saying, "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me!"
“Collective” masses are allowed only 2 times a week provided the person who requests the mass has been informed and has agreed to this arrangement which should not be presumed.
More importantly, the priest can’t keep the amount exceeding the diocesan stipend, but must give it to the Bishop for his chosen charity. See http://www.ewtn.com/library/CURIA/CCLSTIPN.HT...

Pridgen supports legal abortion. Kennedy is neutral on abortion. They are totally opposed to everything the real St Ann Parish stood for. They will do anything to get free publicity from the proabortion media. This isn't "wisdom on high" this is dredging the sewer.(St. Ann, pray for us).

Then why don't you do something to help. So if we dismantle and abort St. Ann's Church, that will help to make abortion illegal?
Are we not supposed to evangelize and create conditions that will
eliminate abortion? Is abortion mandatory just because it's legal. There are a lot of things that are legal but not Catholic.
That's why we need more good priests who know how to teach the faith and not destroy what has already been created for the glory of God.

Too bad sooooo sad for CC!
I know who it is, and CC is the looser in the selective elimination game they play. Will they ever learn?
CC is a cesspool of liars, thieves, sex offenders and selfish, self serving people. It does nothing for the community, and has become nothing more than an empty waste of a shell that serves to fill feelings of nostalgia for the people who abandoned their neighborhood come back for Easter and Christmas. Everyone who gives money to that church is throwing their money away; that church, aside from being a truly beautiful building, is useless and purposeless.

The committees that want to preserve St. Ann church, which I have visited and admired, do not intend to support abortion. But that is the indirect effect, when they allow proabortion politicians and media to exploit their cause. The real St. Ann Parish was prolife. The actual St. Ann Parish opposed proabortion media and politicians, they didn't welcome their support and guidance. They tried to convert them instead.

Kennedy is a big media whore and has double-crossed people who support him. He voted FOR Cuomo's liberalization of State abortion laws which are already liberal enough. This was after he said he would not vote for that provision. Anti Family. Anti Life. Anti Catholic no matter what he says.

When are you idiots going to quit living in denial. You can have all the rally's you want. It's just desperation on your part to keep some crusty old buildings up. Most of the financial support you had are dead. The so call priests that you found so popular have been removed for criminal activity no matter how hard you tried to cover it up, everyone knows the truth. Good riddance! Polish churches represent crime. And it's only a matter of time before the Bishop is forced to get rid of them. But what he really is doing, is giving us a favor. We dont want you! Go back to Poland! You're a cancer!

So why are all the diocesan openly gay priests still around ? Is there a double standard here?

I've met many nice people at Corpus Christi. I go there and I am
be a sinner like you but I try to be nice and compassionate and understanding, why don't you try it too Pan or Pani or Mr. or Mrs. the music is nice too sometimes too loud but nice. The priest speaks with an accent but he's smart. Why do you hate everything?

Are most diocesan priests gay? Do you know the names of those that go to gay bars in Buffalo? Apparently, one of them lives close to the Buffalo Airport who loves to frequent gay bars. What is his name?
