Oh well...Father David Glassmire's partying at his Amherst pad continues tonite....St. Patty's day party and the "Boytoy" as the first to arrive....and he will most likely spend the night. I thought the bishop was aware of this priest continuing a gay relationship with his "Boy Toy"....is the bishop allowing him to maintain a gay relationship and continue as a priest in Batavia? Poor parishioners of Batavia and poor Amherst neighbors. And i was just asked today to increase my Catholic Charities donation...Why so Fr. Dave can have more fun with his "Boy Toy"?
which priests are his friends? any idea? their location,please?

Bishop Malone and the Diocese are leading a Pilgrimage for those ages 16-39 in July 2016 to World Youth Day in Krakow, Poland. This 12-day life-changing journey of faith will include worshipping with the Holy Father and millions of youth/young adults from around the world, as well as trips to Auschwitz, Czestochowa (home of the Black Madonna), Divine Mercy Sanctuary, and Zakopane, plus pre/post pilgrimage experiences at home.

Corpus Christi Church of Hate is eliminating one of its Sunday masses because of dwindling attendance. Pani Andy is receiving exactly what Satan brings to people like him and his meddling matka. Their brand of phony religioustrata are ruining yet another church they slithered into.

Its a cold and cruel diocese. How sad! All the DOB is good for is using you and then when they can't use you any more, you're about as important to them as yesterday's garbage!

They can also visit churches that were demolished and completely rebuilt after the war. In fact whole cities were rebuilt after the war. Maybe they can come back and rebuild Buffalo 's faith AND mortar.

They can visit Our Lady of Czestochowa in Buffalo and it will be a lot cheaper. Then they can give all the money they save to the poor. I wonder how many of the people between the ages of 16 - 39 even know what Czestochowa means.

You are so right. About the state of that Church and the Hate and dislike for fellow humans that exists at that Church.
They are their own worst enemies.

If he's not being buried until later in the week, they usually don't put obituaries in the paper until a couple days before the funeral Mass. I don't think there is anything strange about that.
