Yes all the Buffalonians can be very proud of having a war torn city without having a war like Warsaw did. At least Warsaw rebuilt. What have the Buffalonians accomplished in the last 100 years. You don't even know how to keep what your grandparents built with no money and no College education. What is surprising is how could all those good people produce so many idiots like you that are now the leaders in the community.
I saw a huge construction crane at CC. Thank God, it is not a swinging wracking ball.

My family and I are not parishoners but we certainly enjoyed ourselves at this years dozynki festival. We brought several friends with us and enjoyed the tour of the church too. The cupola is down for repairs and it was a once in a lifetime opportunity to see it up close and take photos as it is a piece of history. The band, food and beer were fantastic in our opinion. The Polish Cafe was immaculate and a nice place to get away from loud activity and relax with a coffee and dessert. We found everyone to be friendly and working hard to make it enjoyable. Hats off to Corpus Christi and we hope the festival continues for years to come. If you are a negative person you will only look at the negative. There is so much good stuff out there now go find it!

Are the priests still having sexual relations with parishioners there?

In February, the Archdiocese of Chicago suspended Rev. Joseph Wilk for “substantiated reports” of sexual misconduct. This week the priest was declared to be “in good standing”. Apparently, the credible abuse report evaporated in thin air. So is the good name of a Catholic priest.

Perhaps it was creative attempts at evangelization in the central city.

Interesting conversation here folks...Good fantasy. Why are you so invested in other people's lives - don't you have any of your own? Suggestion for you,,,,go into fiction writing, many of you would make a mint! I am proud to worship with several of these priests - since I have no parish of my own, I know many of these priests are good, caring, faithful men who you choose to slander. Priests need support - not condemntation for things that only happen in YOUR minds. Even if you are not Catholic or are angry that your church closed...how would you feel if someone said these things about you - or someone you loved. Each of these men have friends and family who love them - they don't deserve this, any more than the priest's do. Many of these priests are also very loved by the people they serve.
I pity you and will be praying for our priests. There are many good priests in this diocese....go look for them and you will find them ministering to others and using their gifts for the betterment of man to the Glory of God. I hope someday you will see that again.

I find it interesting that this the above is being listed as my "first" post...since I posted a few days ago in support of our priests. I guess it got removed. Is that your prejudice against priests showing? I guess I should expect this post to get removed to because you only want to tear people down.

No matter, I stand with the good, decent, caring priests of our diocese...and always will.

National Catholic Reporter has an interesting article on what happens to neighborhoods when Catholic schools close. When Pat Ippolito had to close St. James around 1984, the whole Bailey- Kensington neighborhood, went under and has still never recovered. We can expect repeats as more and more schools go under the ax.

Addendum: In the early 1960's, when a bank in the Bailey-Kensington area was moving its deposits. etc. it was decided to do this early Sunday morning., because everyone was in church, and the move could be made almost unnoticed. The BK area was largely, German and Polish Roman Catholic, some Italian and Irish families, plus a splattering of Lutherans. It was one of the safest neighborhoods in the city, Now, it is one of the most dangerous. School beget families, which beget good neighborhoods.

Sorry, I don't know what to type into the search terms. I've already tried different things like Ippolito and stuff. Any key words or phrases would be helpful. Thanks.
