I for one think it's nice to have a church that needs no repairs. The Polonia people and pastors can get busy and come up with plans and ideas on how to make more money instead of just gossiping about eachother. Working together to help ALL of the east side churches would be novel. That four letter word..work is really a novelty. They could take the lead on that because 795 Main will not.

Who is the person that was eliminated from Corpus Christi that has recently won a huge amount on money in the lottery, and now refuses to give to Corpus Christi?
I am sure they will donate where they attend now.

Is there any church worth giving to? Or let's say any pastor worth giving to? There are plenty of worthy causes out there beside churches of any denomination.

Too bad sooooo sad for CC!
I know who it is, and CC is the looser in the selective elimination game they play. Will they ever learn?

How about the summer villas by the lake with a swimming pool and new fence? Where is the money coming from since the summer villa was paid 159,000 dollars?Are all young priests 'rich' to buy these expensive villas by the lake?

Where in the world did they get all those Euros? Does that sound familiar?Did they buy summer villas by the lake or by the sea?

No, but you can be sure that the government will have to take care of those people. Just as it does here. Half the population of Buffalo is on some kind of government assistance. They go to the soup kitchens so they can save and sell their food stamps. And the government pays for the food and the agencies " for providing services to the poor " What a racket.

Bishop Bling-Bling of Limburg died unexpectedly while in Rome. He presented himself at the Pearly Gates but St. Peter threw him out saying:“Iam recepisti Mercedem tuam!”

Three bishops in Europe accepted to step down due to apparent financial improprieties.
Where were the diocesan priests’ councils, the finance committees, the bishops’ consultors the guidelines of the Episcopal Conferences and, not the least, the authorizations by the Vatican with all the lay people directly and indirectly involved? Could it happen in Buffalo? Where there money, the pipelines are leaking. Remember Judas and Franjone.

Nope, not allowed by the pastor to be on our council. Our parish is forming a council for the first time. I feel like a horse that's been scratched from the race. Never had a chance. Probably being punished for heading up a group that kept our Polish churches open so Fr. Nycz had to be pulled out of Most Precious Blood Parish where he enjoyed the life of Riley and condemned to six years at, as Poblocki called it, the Synagogue of Satan.

Any word on who the new pastor will be at St John Kanty? Guess they had a fill in priest for the Mass today.
