It's not the full story...

A couple of months ago, back in December there was court held in Buena, NJ. because victims who were attacked at Catholic Church parish unity spaghetti dinner at Notre Dame school Buena, NJ

The victims Timothy Trace and Barbara Rossiter Byrnes of St. Mary's Parish , Malaga, NJ were verbally and physically attacked by a male parishioner from Queen of Angels parish in Vineland, NJ

Both victims Trace and Byrnes had tickets to spaghetti luncheon and had earlier participated in a peaceful protest outside with many other parishioenrs of st mary's in malaga, NJ.

However, once inside, the parishioners of st. mary's of malaga, nj were greeted with hostile and un-christian like behavior by many including father ed ward namiotaka who had recently closed down st mary's. It seems that father ed namiotka thrives on trouble because he had most of the Buena Police Department there asw his personal escort from table to table.(The buena police department should have been on the streets serving the tax payers of buena, NJ not the camdnen diocese.) There were no calls to 911 either that day) It waws father ed namiotka who had called the police. He sat down and stuffed hiw face with food without even saying grace for the whole public as it was a "catholic" parish unity luncheon. A man who is good friends of father namiotka and parishioner attacked Timothy trace when he handed a flyer to father namiotaka. The man from queen of angels parish attacked trace and other women including Barbara Byrnes. This "catholic" parishioner called the women "fat slobs". After verbally and physically attacking the women, the man hung his head and continued to eat and drink alcoholic beverage during a catholic church event at Notre Dame School where there were minors under 21 present.

Assault Charges were later filed at Buena Court, NJ....FAther Romanowski former pastor of ST. marys' in malaga, NJ was present at court to support victims Trace and byrnes. Father Ed's Namiotka's parishioner pleaded Guilty of lesser charges, fined and made to apologize to victims.

To this day, Father Ed Namiotka of Queen of Angels parish in vineland , bishop galante and the camden diocese never apologized to the victims timothy trace or barbara byrnes. Byrnes had big bruise on ribs as a result of the "public nuisance"

Then came January 3, 2011..

Ps. Father ed namiotka witnessed the abuse and took no action and condoned it.

At another nearby parish which was closed and merged, a priest denied communion to a Catholic man who was dying of cancer who had months earlier participated in a meeting to prevent church closures. This same priest also cussed out female parishioners for objecting to church closures. The priest was later promoted to parish in camden county by galante.

How can pope john paul II make sainthood ahead of others, including Blessed Tekawitha.

It is more like a political move instead of spiritual move.

I find it so very disturbing to find clericalism in this particular parish. It appears the bishop either has no knowledge or simply ignores the obvious.

As to Mr. Trace and Ms. Byrnes, I find it quite disappointing the diocese does not turn the other cheek. It appears, this diocese will be on the same track of clerical abuses, "without" knowledge from the Bishop.

As to those who seem to believe a priest let alone a bishop cannot be questioned, it is a shame. A shame that many have fallen to provincial chauvenism. As has been seen, the new parish of the Blessed Sacrament will have to points, the parish church located in Newfield, while the center of the new parish will be in Minatola.

What happened ot ms. byrnes and mr trace and along other factors should be enough for the vatican to void the creed that was recently issued.

Where is the police chief of buena. Heard he is criminal that fixed his own prescriptions. Someone should check to see that he didn't doctor up his police investigations especially he was a former student of father eds.
