I've been a parishoner there most of my life and I often wonder why. The church is filled with the most spiteful, vindictive and hateful people I have ever known. That church is closed to anyone who isn't a Pole. You are treated with suspicion, gossiped about--which usually is a pack of lies started by a cluster of individuals. I have openly spoke about the maltreatment of people there only to be given a cold shoulder on the topic. The leadership focuses and has for years on keeping the building upright. Morals, standards, and religion have little to do with that place. It needs to close.

Exactly what language are you speaking? Your post makes no sense. If you have something to say, make sure your audience can understand it. Stop scribbling gibberish and write English.

If you are saying maltreatment in a church is okay, then you are one sorry excuse for a Catholic and a human being. You probably go there. Recognize yourself?

I went there a couple of times. Ain't nothin much left there--mostly the half-dead. It's no place for kids. NOthin for kids there. Priest spends his time trying to squeeze money out of ya for this or that stupid repair. Great place to stay away from. St. Joseph is much better.

Holy Trinity is a fine church and shame on anyone making comments that are false. I go there and I am not Polish and never had any issues with any parishoner . Stop the BS all.

You're full of cabbage, dude. That church is the worst in the entire city. Nasty parishoners, money hungry priests, boring service with the worst music I have ever heard. They spend their time backstabbing each other and trying to fix a mausoleum that is begging for a wrecking ball. God won't even go there. As a matter of fact, even most of the poles have left. Nothing is left but the one-foot-in -grave set. Another 5 years and it's gone for good. as it should be.

I used to go there, my parents were married there, took my first communion, was confirmed there i even went to school there! Wanted to get married there, but evil father hapanowicz turned us away after finding out my husband and I were living together.(Oh no!) needless to say, never got married there, will never return. I'm much happier without religion. Do weddings even happen there??
and why is that

If you knew anything of your faith, it is still considered to be a sin if you are living with your partner outside the state of matrimony, that's another "always has been that way". Many live together, and many know, if they believe in their Christian faith, thta they are living in sin. You can't blame the Priest for that, it is the rule. If you don't believe in your religion, that's one thing, but it is the way it is.

You are correct, I overlooked that part!!
My son lived with his gf for a while before they got married, and the Priest was glad to marry them. If that priest did turn down performing the wedding ceremony, then he was in the wrong. Most would be happy to, to lead them on the right path, so to speak, lol.
