Close all catholic churches. They are useless anyways. They do not tell you how to get to heaven. All they do is hold out their hands for money. That's what the catholic church is about money, money, money. they don't teach salvation, and they pray to statues. That is against God's laws. That is idol worship. Close all Catholic churches and get rid of the bishop.
Amen!

Why did Sister Regina Murphy close majority of the Polish Parishes????She kept the Irish Parishes open by linking them. Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Buffalo should be closed because of financial difficulty. Are they paying their assesment??? Check it out. Is it because Sister Murphy is IRISH? Check out the other Parishes.......
Hey "lola"

It is apparent that you are that Gammarelli dude from the other diocese threads. You are obsessed with the polish mass, and with the bishop and regina too.

Put a sock in your big mouth-as was so eloquently put earlier.

The catholic church sucks and it is apparent that it's done nothing for you either.

Did you know that the Bible tells the way of salvation?

Islam won't rule the world. The final battle between Islam and the rest of world is set. There is nothing that can stop it either. Islam is the cancer of the planet preaching it's hatred toward all, it's intolerance, and killing of the innocent in the name of God. I say let the Great Crusade begin. It's high time somebody said this.
Also remember that half of the muslims in the world are women and children. They have no say in anything and if they do they are punished severly or killed. They are basically forced into this religion.

Definite playing of favorites here! How is St.mark's on woodward st not on the list? Mass in that place is like visiting a ghost town!

So? What are supposed to do because there are Muslim women and children? Allow Muslim males to conduct Jihad against us? Do you think they care if they kill "infidel" women and children? If you're looking at sympathy from me,.....please remember my sympathies are for the families who lost members because of Islamic terror. I have no sympathy for the women and children of those who perpetrate acts of terror against innocents.

He had absolutely no concern about the parishioners. Reggie had an agenda and he approved it.

I was not looking for sympathy, I was just stating a fact. I have no respect for these people. They are nothing but terrorists.

The Antichrist Barack Obama is not the answer! But I feel it will be to late for us all when he is in power! Muslim Religion will rule this Country and it just goes to show how ignorant the American people truly are. May God have mercy on us All !

I am so sick of the Diocese closing all these churches and merging. It is only one person doing this, and it is the bishop. He never knew anything about our diocese until he came here and started strong-arming the parishoners by his dictatorship ways. I can't believe he is considering merging and/or closing St Thomas Aquinas in South Buffalo, Fr. Art is a wonderful pastor. I have attended that church a few times including funerals for family and friends. One was just earlier this year. He did this mass in such a wonderful way, that I was crying. He made everyone belong to this celebration of life mass/service. He was on tv tonight saying that he has to reapply for the Pastor's job when he was there for over 10 year. Is that fair? St Thomas Aquinas is a viable parish. Bishop Kimec should leave that church alone.
I am getting more dissolutioned by these idiotic changes that I am seriously considering converting to another religion that is more accepting and friendly and not going through these changes. They are stable, not like the Catholic Church. I have a family member who was raised Catholic and is now an Episcopalian. Doesn't that tell you something???? I wish Bishop Kimec would get out of town asap so we can get back to the way we were.
I second that motion...we need to band together and rid the diocese of Bishop Kmiec, Sister Regina Murphy, Kevin Keenan and everyone else associated with the chancery. They are all corrupt and have no business representing Jesus Christ. Power to the people!!!!!

Forget the diocese; remain a faithful Catholic to Christ.
I dont think so dude....thats why we are in this mess, cuz we closed our eyes to what the diocese was doing. I agree that we remain faithful to our faith and continue to follow Jesus, but we also need to make the diocese and clery accountable and responsible for the corruption inside the chancery and for the debacle they called the Journey in Faith and Grace. Fighting against injustice...that is what Jesus is calling us to do
