Hope you all have a ton of money somewhere. It says nothing about the diocese helping or even getting involved. You need to pay closer attention to Vatican speak!
One company has estimated the cost for stabilization at 10% of that amount. Besides, a few years ago, soon after the Jesuits left St. Ann’s, parishioners wanted to start a fundraising for the restoration of the Church. Bishop Kmiec told them in writing not to.
