A whiff of Nordic air knocked down the safety fence set up by the Diocese around the St. Anne’s property. How ironic that the unsafe bell town remained standing and untouched.

That's because the tower is strong, structurally sound, and divinely protected. Too bad the diocese isn't.

Probably,St Ann's will be shut down. It's just too expensive to maintain. The Jesuits saw the handwriting on the wall a long time ago and pulled out.

The Arts Center wanted to buy it, provided it could use it also or Catholic services. How is it that private owners can do what the Diocese can not? St. Ann's is not ANY church....

I went to Corpus Christi one time and I got an ear full of Gossip.
That is NOT what my family and I are looking for in a Church.
No focus on Eucharist there!
I go to Corpus Christi and I say hello to the people and when I leave I say have a nice day. I don't tell anybody anything and nobody tells me anything. I don't think you hear gossip from the priests on the alter. But like everywhere, if you look for dirt, dirt finds you.3

I think Oprah Winfrey should interview Mr. Chalupka and ask him why he was fooling everyone for so long, and living a lie. I feel bad for the people of Corpus Christi. Maybe that is why they are so selective of who goes there and they eliminate those they do not want. They are being very careful.
Tell us how they eliminate you if you go to mass and MYOB as Dear Abbey used to say. You sound like you are looking for trouble or looking to cause trouble and nobody wants you bcause we have enough troublemakers already. Don't think we are so dumb, we do know who they are. It's the nice people we can count on two hands.

If it's too expensive to maintain, how has the parish been doing it with no problems for so long? And "pulling out" or running away are no ways to address handwriting on a wall. The Jesuits are doing no favors to anyone by hiding.
