In other words, today is a good day for finalizing everything....not tomorrow, not the next day. Today.
Confusing post. Did you donate towards the purchase of HT in the Falls?

I was there-it was just a big, big show. A performance just like the AmPol eagle said. No focus on the Mass or Eucharist.
Polish People are Nasty!
At least at Corpus Christi.
You are very fortunate that the only nasty people you have found are Polish and at Corpus Christi. That makes it easy to avoid them. I find them everywhere in the Catholic church and they come in all color, shapes and sizes and ethnic groups. You probably think you're nice and that scares me.

Actually, let me elaborate. The Church that My immediate family went to for the last 11 years was closed and we were searching for a Parish to join. We thought maybe returning to the Church of my childhood years might be the solution. It is not. My parents continued going to Corpus Christi until they died, but it has changed-not for the better. I really do not think I an a dolt for trying to find a place to worship, and a place that respects liturgy.
Fancy clothes, Fancy language, Fancy music does not a healthy liturgy make.
No matter what you want to say against Corpus Christi, it is not fair to say anything about the liturgy. You do not find much better anywhere not even at the Latin Masses anymore since nobody knows what they are doing in Latin or English in the new or the old. If you have a problem whith your old friends too bad for you but don't take it out on the priests. Fancy clothes? Hardly, Fancy Language? with a Polish accent? Fancy music? Do you prefer guitar?
You should learn some Polish , it might make you a better Catholic.

Perhaps the current Polish priests can give us all a lesson on how not to get caught being criminal. Face it all of you that tried blurting out your pathetic defense for 1 priest who tried molesting a young kid at 14 and then outright lied and had people try to pay off the former bishop to cover it up!! Where is he now? Hey Dupa where is your article now as sole!!! Everyone now what's what you're all about and when you walk in public get ready to hear from everyone what you truly are you piece of garbage. That goes for everyone from that child molestors church. You're now marked. We can't wait to see you in public. After all you said on here regarding innocent people is now going to fuc k you up your as shole. You better run the other way if you see us because we will shout and point you out to everyone what you truly are.

Pardon me for being so uninformed. Is Corpus Christi the Church on the East Side that was probably lovely years ago before all the parishioners ran for the burbs? If it is, I believe I toured it with a confirmation group about 10 years ago. It was lovely but decaying.

Yes, it the famous Dr. Burzynski and his enormous savings that he left for the Casino Church in the Falls. Where is that money now? Invested in a summer villa? Or what? Where is it?

I fondly remember the days when "Eyewitness News" was #1 in the ratings. The other stations didn't even come close. Today? Ch. 7 lingers in the ratings basement while Ch. 4 and Ch 2 battle it out. How the mighty have fallen. Weinstein, Azar, and Jolls are surely missed.

They should go back and take care of St. Ann's . The best that anybody has ever built in this diocese, diocesan or religiouds order. Call the Pope so that he can do something for a very deserving area instead of worrying about everything except what his people care about.

<quoted text> Yes. consider the fate of Immaculate heart of Mary on Edison Street. It met all the stipulation of JF& G, yet was still closed. the parishioners really struggled to keep it open and look what happened. Now, many of them have just abandoned the church. a few struggle to get to St. Aloysius.
St. Bonaventure Church in West Seneca never had a chance. There was no reason to close the Parish other than the Pastor and Woman Religious who was working for him wanted it closed. If a parishioner asked what was going on with the merger they would answer, "we are still going downtown" leading people to believe that they were trying to save the Parish when in fact they were making their plans to close. The most well attended Masses were shifted to the other Parish which made it look as though there was low attendance at St. Bonaventure. The parishioners contributed generously, the building were in good shape and there were things happening in the Parish. Mergered with St. Williams. Can't even use the hall for older or disabled persons as it is on the lower level with no rest rooms.
