The Batavia Barn Boy lives in a palazzo in Wheatfield in a house that he paid in cash:$250,000 dollars, while his former secretary siphoned over 500,000 from St. Christopher's Parish.
And where is the secretary today? Is she his "housekeeper"?

What about all the priests living and going on vacations, pilgrimages and cruises with their boy friends? If sex is with another man therefore weird and unnatural it's OK?

The police found Anzelm on a picnic table on top of a woman having sexual intercourse in Cheektowaga Town Park. Obviously they were very disturbed when they asked for ID and it turned out to be the pastor of Corpus Christi. He was not wearing his virginal robes according to the police report. He was literally caught with his pants down.
Pants on the ground , pants on the ground,lookin like a fool with your pants on the ground.

No charges filed for public lewdness or using a public picnic table for an unintended purpose? Would he have got off that easy if he wasn't a priest? Vaguely recall another couple on a picnic table making the news but I think they had charges against them. Anyone remember that?
Dont these priest know we are eating at these tables. WTF

<quoted text> The pastor who stands by his school parents is doing the smart thing. Those parents (in most cases) are huge supporters of a parish. They are the ones who still feel a Catholic education is important leading to a life of Catholicism for their kids. They get involve with service hours and many extend to other things. If a pastor does not support his parents or at least tries, he stands losing alot for that parish. Unless he moves on. However, he may want to stay there? The old saying among priests is going to become obsolete in this day and age, "when one bus (suckers touch ) leaves another one comes along." Each time you close a school or parish you lose people, support and money. You close enough, you have none! The Bishop can stand his ground as he will be the last to lose anything. My guess is that it will take two new generations of Bishops before they start realizing or feeling the effects of what they have and are doing.
Well said! Bishops are out of touch with reality and downstream implications of their decisions.

To keep open those schools that are already 'expiring' is wasting of time and money.

Oh yes, they are part of that group also. "Pilgrimages?" Are you kidding? Do you know any by name?

Chalupka cheated and lied to everyone at Corpus Christi for all those years, I am sure now he is cheating and lying with his girlfriend and daughter.
You can mark my words, he is getting it on the side even today.
Happy belated birthday to the Daughter of Anzelm!

Due to financial difficulties and declining enrollments in the Catholic schools, the bishop decided to close ten school tis coming June. That was the right thing to do as Bishop Kmiec closed empy and semiempty churches across the Diocese six years ago.

Poor Fr. Chalupka, he did not have a 150,000 dollars to buy a summer hut by the lake in order to cool himself off in Lake Ontario.
