The undertaker said he had to be buried in another priest's clothes. How sad! I think the DOB should hang their heads in SHAME.

It was one of the best decisions to demolish the St. Ann's Church in Buffalo. More churches should be closed and demolished. It should happem in Buffalo, Batavia, Niagara Falls, Dunkirk, and other places. People simply moved out, and the churches are empty.

Where is he when you need him . There are a lot of people that are useless and shiftless especially among the clergy that should be gotten rid of before the beautiful buildings built with the sweat of faithful believers for the ignorant ingrates alive today.
What great stewards. Give everybody a few coins and they instantly become brilliant. What total Buffalo shitbags!

Those people who built them with their sweat are dead in their graves and have stopped sweating years ago. Now that their gone who will go to these churches they built on every corner? Not the children or grandchildren they raised. Tear them down and put the buildings in their graves too!

Hopefully, after 5 years, the DOB will decide to close more parishes which are unnecessary to exist in the first place. Some parishes should close in Buffalo, Dunkirk, Batavia, Niagara Falls, and other places as well.No need for the Lay Parish Administrators! Close some more parishes and you will have extra priests available for the necessary parishes.

Michelangelo also is dead. Should we knock down St. Peter’s Basilica?
After all it is not a parish church.

You sound like a graduate of the Sr. Regina no-nunsense school of moral bankruptcy.
