Sacred Heart is closed.
Yes, I know that. However, Mount Carmel, St. Stan's, and St John della Salle should also close as soon as possible.

According to the Pew Forum, 41% of American Catholics stated they attend mass every week.
Let us do some math. There are 125 thousand Catholics in the Diocese of Buffalo worshipping in 190 sites. That averages 700 people peer site, per week. plus those who attend occasionally. No kidding!

In that city you need one in the East: Prince of Peace, one in the Southwest: St. Joseph, and one in the North: St. Teresa. Close the rest of them.

That one is the former St. Teresa, and the only one in the North. You need that one. Then, you need one in the East: Prince of Peace, and one in the Southwest: St. Joseph. Clear now?

The difference is idiots like yourself are too blind to see that these scumbags have parishioners lying for them all well knowing how guilty they are and will stoop to whatever low they can to save their own skin even going so far as to make up lies about anyone who disassociated themselves from their scumy parish. Case in point.. SJG.
What do you mean? You should go to church to pray not get into people's personal lives. How about that 8th. commandment? Doesn't it apply to everybody.

The only thing clear is that we have you campaigning to keep it open. Kinda like you have a vested interest in the parish. Clearer now?

This church should be closed like ours did in 2008. That is Casino church. No parishioners!

You are right. We also had a beautiful faith community that was shuttered by Regina in 2008. Now I don't care what they do. I no longer have a parish, haven't had one for five years. Now we can sit back and watch. What goes around, comes around. The high and mighty from 5 years ago who looked down at us will now be in our shoes. Amen.

What's your hang up with Corpus Christi? It's the best church in the city. Why does it bother you?

My problem is not with Corpus Christi Church, it is with the nasty Polish people there. It is not a Healthy spirit filled assembly. They are not focused on Eucharist.
Bowling, Piwo, and eliminating those they do not like, or are not like them have priority.
My sister and I are going to another Church where Christ is the focus, and where there is healthy liturgy.

I don't know what you're talking about, but I was there for the Canisus College Chorale concert a few weeks ago, and also the Ludowa Nuto concert last week.

I'm not a parishioner there, but I went to mass before the concerts and then stayed for the concerts.
I found everyone to be very inviting, kind and filled with a very healthy and holy spirit.

I'm not sure, but it sounds like you have a grudge with Polish people, and maybe not the church.

You couldn't be more wrong. I just don't want to own a parish. It's a done deal.
