Glassmire has always been a bottom - strictly a bottom. He's been getting it for years from Corbin who enjoys being serviced. Perhaps they got bored with each other and brought in Jacek for a little variety and diversity in the Eternal City. You know what they say, "Variety is the spice of life!"
This is a very interesting observation. I do not know how accurate it is. It might be just a pure imagination. Or guessing!

They only create a problem and then leave. Especially that Tom Yots, the biggest troublemaker of all! Just look what he did in the Falls.
What are you talking about? Mr. Yots helped Holy Trinity in the Falls.

Holy Trinity R. C. Church Complex has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places, June 2010. Almost four years later and the doors are still open.

Also, The Preservation League of New York State has awarded a Technical Assistance Grant to Historic Holy Trinity for directly engaged in the stewardship and public use of historic buildings.(ALBANY, NY (09/04/2013))
The $3,000 grant to Historic Holy Trinity will support the cost of an accessibility study at the former Holy Trinity School.

The not-for-profit group of Historic Holy Trinity will complete an accessibility study for a National Register-listed 1914 school building located in the city's ethnically diverse East Side. The former school is used for public education and social assistance programs. Its third floor features a gymnasium and a dining hall that reflects its Polish origins, but since the school is not fully accessible, these valuable spaces are underutilized. The study will be completed by Foit-Albert Associates of Buffalo and will help Niagara Heritage better realize the building's potential as a vibrant community center with an Ethnic Heritage Museum.

"On behalf of the Board of Directors, we are grateful to the Preservation League of New York State," said Marg Domagalski, President of Historic Holy Trinity. "This grant is paramount in realizing our long term goals to revitalize the building's future potential. We are excited to work with Foit-Albert Associates on this worthwhile project, which is in line with our mission to give back to the community."

Rome has said St. Ann remains church. It's the only way to keep all the vultures out There have been too many buildings that have been stripped in Buffalo. Why doesn't the diocese demolish St. Gerard's ? Why is it still standing and they keep bothering St. Ann. Is there something to prove here?

Dear Holy Trinity, Please let us know what has been sold and what has gone by the way side in your church. And what would have been so bad about keeping it a church instead of keeping that shack down the street. There are plenty of awful buildings in the Falls that could have been reused and leave Holy Trinity the splendid church it was. Who gains from all this ? Certainly not the past or present parishioners.
All of these so called leaders deserve a public spanking. The only thing you can be sure of is that there's always someone making a shady deal behind somebody's back.

Giving $3000 dollars is not even sufficient for the electric bill for those buildings in the Falls. You must be dreaming! That Yots is the biggest troublemaker of all! Let him come with money and pay all the monthly bills for Holy Trinity in the Falls!

Bishop Malone now wants to hire Preservation Buffalo Niagara for the “re-use” of St. Ann’s church. What use? How many churches did this phantom company restore to their original Catholic worship site? The game it to strip St. Ann’s of all its valuables and leave its shell to the vultures.
Some vultures are disguised as parrots and some as cardinals some are just buzzards.

Yes, it is the final decision written in black and white on Vatican letter head. It is the duty of this bishop to honor that. Re-use and demolition are NOT options.

Will the 'three divine messengers' travel to Rome again on April 27, 2014 from Buffalo. They will lead a pilgrimage to the Vatican for that important celebration. Will Fr. Glassmire be part of that group of 'divine messengers'?.Is Glassmire still snoring at night when he sleeps?

Have you read the decree? Sure, the diocese is appealing the decision but the odds of successfully overturning the ruling are against them. In the mean time, St. Ann's Church and Shrine is NOT reduced to profane use and must continue as the worship site it was intended to be. There is merely a small handful of persons who want it demolished, and they all work in the same office.
