Many have heard of the extreme makeover that the Mother Church of Polonia has received under the pastorate of Bishop Edward Grosz. Some say that it one of the greatest thing to see happen. Other feel that it was crazy and totally destroyed the look of the interior.
Upon entering, one is taken back by the magnificent new chandaliers. The fine appointments such as the candebras, magnificent statue of Pope John Paul II, the magnificent pipe organ. One person called it the Titanic of parishes, considering the luxurous look that is evident throughout the grounds and buildings.
Others would say it was like rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. They feel that it was a waste of money, particularly in a time when other parishes were asked to stop capital spending and are looking at merging with neighboring parishes.
Whether you be fan or foe, St. Stan's has not been overlooked by others. They marvel at what some call "the miracle of the loaves and fishes spending" and marvel at how they do it.
More to come and more to hear on this topic.
We can't wait to hear what else you have to say Gammy!

Wow, Gammy, you are our HERO!

Does this mean there will be less priests in the area? Less priests means less sodomy, which means a very unhappy WNYResident.

As I stated back in April, "less priests means less sodomy."
