Thanks! Dupo is about to lose it's Catholic Church. There aren't enough people in this town who attend mass or raise there children to grow up in the Catholic faith.
They only come to church when they want to use it for weddings and baptism's and, then you don't see them until the next time they need something. But they still want to called Catholics.
There's still time left to try and turn things around for our church in Dupo, think about giving an hour of your time back to God. Show the people who make the final decision that we are growing. And "don't play the I don't go to church because of all the scandals card" there are evils around every where. How do you get rid of evil? By turning to good and raising your family with values.
We are down to one mass on Sundays at 8:00 am if we had more people return we would have additional masses. Think about it!
Please don't slam the Catholic faith, we are for God.

So I'm supposedto go to a church and worship a different religion than what I believe? That's stupid and maybe a few less pedifiles in your religion might bring more people to your church.

Why would you post this on topix? So everyone can comment about how all Catholics are, are money hungry child molesters.......we have heard all of this before...lame, find a new punch line. People will talk about a religious choice, but will look past the fact that dupo is a town of Hoosiers and link dependent single mothers. Even the 'high class' of Dupo is nothing but a bunch of Columbia wanna bes that live their life through the school district, waking up everyday to think they are in control and snoop around in everyone's business.
You obviously thought you were in the right posting this, but in the end forgot to remember you live in Dupo with a bunch of meth head morons, will bash your faith to a Pulp, and then probably shake your hand Sunday at church!

Why the sh!t does everyone think that Columbia is the envy of the bi-state area!?! If my goal was to be a stuck up snob I would want to be from Ladue or Frontenac, but sure the hell not Columbia, IL!!!

This is no surprise to anyone that goes to church. Dupo is not the only town in danger of losing their Catholic church. The diocese is struggling, not just Sacred Heart. Be it the scandels, recession, whatever the excuses are the church is fighting dwindling donations and membership just like MANY churches are in these tough times.

Topix is NOT the place for this conversation since it breeds nothing but negativity and gossip... Poor move Info

Imagine that. Loser troll brian posts a negative comment, and then from another IP, a supposedly thoughtful and serious comment about negativety on topix. This coming from the master of negativety on topix. Sacred Heart Parish lacks a priest, just as other parishes are. They are combining parishes, Dupo to Columbia, Cahokia to Millstadt, ect., to provide a service to the members. Maye if people thought that taking their kids to church on sundays, as opposed to sports events in the hope of creating little superstars, all these churches wouldn't be struggling for attendence.

Hey dumb ass, if you could read I said "IF I wanted to be a stuck up snob...." which I've never had any desire to be!! And I'll guarantee you're no better than anyone else!

I agree. I grew up in Dupo. We bought a house in Columbia a few years ago because of the school district. Columbia is not all it's touted to be. If you were not crib raised here you are looked down at by those that are. The schools are good & a far better cry than Dupo, I will agree with that but the town is full of people moving south from Cahokia, Dupo, EC. Waterloo is just as bad. Its just a town full of people & taxes that are ridiculous. Everyone that lives here wants the town to appear as this quaint, small community that has moral & values. That's perfect & its far from it. The community is full of problems just as every other town. People and their pride & judgments get in the way. There are drugs, underage drinking, crime - all the problems that other cities/towns have. The different is the other towns don't hide them, they try to fix them or not. Its simply an embarrassment to the people of Columbia b/c "that doesn't happen here"
