The church has ZERO interest in the thoughts of it's parishioners. It has always been, and always WILL BE, about money and power (control). Control the flock, bleed them drive, then move on. The church has done little to attempt to reassure its "flock" in these difficult times and seemingly has gone out of its way to suppress it's extremely serious and disgusting pedophile issue. The cover has been blown off the private "mens" club and the church is doing everything in its power to restore that cover so it can get back to business as usual. It's all been just an elaborate ruse to provide wealth and a good life to a bunch of perverted and greedy men.

I'm getting sick of hearing and reading about this church-It's a building--OWNED BY THE CHURCH. Arrest all the treespassers, secure the building- then sell it and be done with this garbage.

The Church is
A Group of Believers
That Pay Bills and Maintain

NOT some nasty clerics that floated up to the top
and use the property and funds for personal reasons

It's #4 - they don't want anyone to visit, to learn about the vigil and what they have wrought.

As I said, you sound like a real a--!!!! No I didn't build it and NO I don't go to church someplace else!!

Once again, if it bothers you so much to read about it or hear about it, then DON'T !!!! Sounds like you'd have issues with ANYTHING that wasn't what YOU felt should or shouldn't be. You also sound like a sad angry person who has nothing better to do!!

People forget that a church is NOT a building, it's any group of believers who meet together for worship and mutual support. Buildings don't matter one ounce to God; people can just as easily meet in a member's home as a huge extravagant building.

Then close ALL churches. Why were they built in the first place, and why are some treated as "worthy" and others not? Catholics can not have a Mass "anywhere" unless a priest is present.

So the leaders of your faith are betraying God? Time for a schism and fast!

"I burn down your cities-how blind you must be
I take from you your children and you say how blessed are we
You all must be crazy to put your faith in me
That's why I love mankind"

Whoever was responsible for St Stan's being added to the list, the people of Adams owe you a great thanks. The word is that a final answer will be coming soon. Finally, the catholic community in Adams will be able to move on and continue to grow.
