Yes it is wrong.. First everyone must know that most of the parisheners are MEXICAN. These people who are crying the most are mexicans from what i have been hearing. According to their tradition in MEXICO, they dont give money to the churches.. First these are the group that the church wants immigration to forgive them for sneaking in illegally. This is church system that give santurary, a hidding place from the law.. So for those who continually supported st. joes, i feel so sorry about the churches decisions. The catholic church has lost touch with its members. Since, the church position is to treat mexicans especially illegals, they the church officals of the Diocese of Joliet have not put the edict to everyone, you must support your local churches or else. How many illegals are getting free education at St. Joes? Yes, a part of Joliet is losing a valuable and important part of the community. But, it was the freeloaders who that caused this. Those who have paid their education bill, and give weekly in collections. They cant support freeloaders who tradition in Mexico forbids them to give the church money..THIS IS AMERICA!.. This is why I cant support the catholic church because of it politically correct policies.. Ohhhh those poor illegals lets hide them and give them free education.. I can remember another church St. Johns, who sucks up these groups who freeload, decided on their own that they needed to get a statue of St. John. A momument to the pastor there.. They never asked the members if they wanted it.. SO they did anyhow.. i can remember the letter pleading for the money for the installment payments. I found out later the mexican priest wanted it... i have no faith of joliet churches..

The only reason the church favors the Mexicans, is because they are to only ones having kids by the dozens. That means more boys to rape. Keeps the priest happy.

I'm confused, could somebody explain to me why I should be concerned with this. I mean, I'm not Catholic, and this has nothing to do with Braidwood. Why not move this thread to the Joliet topix? Or find a Catholic forum to bash mexican Catholics.

First of all, there are no illegal immigrants attending St. Joseph School. The population of the school is almost half Mexican-Americans who pay the same tuition as all other students. Please check your facts before spreading untruths. We are proud of our student body and of our St. Joseph School family. We are heartbroken at the Diocese's decision to close us. This is a very devastating time for us. Keep us in your prayers.

I'm saddened by your comments. Public schools are great. But some people value the Catholic education system - a system that does not promote prejudice and malice. Your hatred and vile comments do not apply to our school.

Ah,you may be the person who can explain to me why the United States invaded Mexico,to move the border 150 miles further south to the Rio Grande. We also took 5 states from them. Maybe they have come back to regain their property. Who is the illegal immigrant? Gen.US grant said it was the most unjust war ever fought by the US.
