<quoted text>The church was called "Our Saviour". Is it still in existence? Maybe on 19th Street
If I recall, the church was founded for the Ruthenians
by the Italian priest Santodonato.

I thought most Ruthenians belonged to the Byzantine rite. They did have a church in Amherst,St. Stephen the Protomartyr,started around 1965,but closed in 2008 or so. St. Mary's Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Church was originally Catholic,but became independent after the 1938 crisis over celibacy.(Actually, the bishop who had to enforce celibacy,Daniel Ivancho, was himself secretly married,but was eventually found out in 1954.) St. Peter & Paul on Benziger Street,(OCA) also had at one time been Catholic. Anyway who was this Santo Donato? Is his church still around. I thought it was most Italian.

To all the tired, huddled, catholic massses yearning to breathe free and get away from the cesspools of other parishes, go to Mass at St. Ann's Church. No pastors, no committees, no vicious gossip, no bingo, no school, no soup kitchen, no food pantry, no baloney and no money to steal. No fuss no muss no mess, just mass. It's an ideal setting.
Wasn't St. Ann blasted by the meteor originating at 795 Main St?
If it's still standing, I 'll check it out Sunday and bring my own coffee and doughnuts. Sounds great.

Please don't insult the mafia. The members have much more integrity than the liars on this blog who only understand vulgarity and personal attacks. But they shouldn't go too far, you never know who is out there to eliminate you.

Peter Drilling, in an effort to score "brownie points" indicated at the Priests Council Meeting that Bishop Head had warned priests in 1972 to save for their retirements.

A couple of points:

1.) Bishop Head was not the Bishop of Buffalo in
1972.

2.) Let's PRETEND he was bishop. Who warned the
priests ordained after that?

Peter needs to get some common sense (which he lacks) and stop trying to score points with the Bishop and the DOB.

Peter Drilling lives in a dream world since the ordination.
