So it's official, St. Anthony's is closing for the well paid staff at Transfiguration. I wonder when the church will change the name back to Transfiguration now that the outcast Leprosy congregation is kaput.

Amen Brother who didn't see this coming the day they merged the 2 churches. It's a crying shame, closing down a nice well built building with lots of parking for a run down dilapidated building with a very small parking lot. Kept all the musicians from transfig, said screw you to all the singers musicians, etc from St Anthonys. A real shame. This bishop is about as crooked as a politician. Won't stop till all the catholics have to drive to St Pauls Cathedral for Sunday Mass.

St Anthony's parking is great if you arent old or limited physically...the majority of parking at St Anthony's is at the big lot on Park Avenue. The actual pkg lot behind Transfiguration is small but there is plenty of street parking on level ground within 1-2 blocks of the church.... not even a valid comparison.

NOw if we can get back to praying the Gloria and the Our Father all will be good. Lose the singers. The one piano player thinks it is all about her.

My husband and I are very unhappy about the closing of S. Anthony, so we have decided to look for a new church to attend. We do not enjoy the service at Transfigeration Church and feel that the people are very unwelcoming!

There are alot of unhappy people in reguards to this change. Change is inevitable. If you think you would be more comfortable at another parish..more power to you. I do agree that Transfigurations' parishoners are less inclined to be friendly but you may or may not encounter this anywhere you go. St. Anthonys' will truly be missed..don't think you're gonna find that type of atmosphere anywhere!

Was at the 9:00 mass today. The choir screwed up the Gloria again. Time to give up singing it.

Your weekly report on how dismayed you are with the singing is getting older than me and you...If it upsets you that much then..A) Go to the choir and tell them about it..or 2. Find a new place to worship. Don't think you're gonna get much accomplished on an internet forum.

I am not Catholic, but if I were searching for a church I would pick neither of these churches with the amount of hatred coming from these two groups. The Lord is not smiling down on either of these churches I am sure. You people need to ask for forgiveness and start anew. What a terrible testimony of your faith. It's a disgrace.

Thoust who lives in glass houses should not throw stones. There are merely a few outspoken people that do not represent the majority. I will pray for you.
