these children would not have to be going through these changes if we as catholics would not have to be paying all the lawsuite of the priests that did wrong. i am catholic by default i was raised this way, but i turley need to ask if these are the teachings i want to let my children know, i have strong christian values, but am not happy always happy the way the catholic churc is run.. i feel that the manmade laws are some times to much to bear especially when you can always just pay your way out of a sin... ex. we will forgive your faulty marriage if you give the church 400.00 for an anullment...) ok not you tell me where go wants that money to go?? it certainly doesn't go to the poor , or to another couple that might need counsling. the catholic church needs changes or we will be a religion with no home.

The Church seems to be forgetting it's mission is to serve the peope not build bank accounts for the Pope. Instead of spending money for missionaries they should divert it to keeping schools open. Shame on the Bishops for misplacing their priorities.

I totally agree. I went to Catholic school for 8 years, public for high school. I truly wish I could afford to send my 2 children to the local catholic school, but at almost $3,000 per child it's impossible. What is even more frustrating is that within the diocese, different rates are set for different schools. For example, St Elizabeths school in Whitehall offers a huge discount for sending a second child; whereas Our lady of Hungary in Northampton offers just about no discount at all.
when my kids attended Catholic school up to Kindergarten, I found that each year I'd get the standard form letter indicating more money was needed for bills, etc, without really provided any more educational value or curriculum for the students. What's even more confusing it that the Allentown Catholic Diocese director/spokesperson, Matt K.... has children that all went to public school. Practice what you preach???
This is just a cycle that isn't going to end.
