3 more members of the parish council at St. Teresa's resigned from the council. Some others are thinking of following. One lady said that wherever she goes and mentions St. Teresa's people want to state negatives. Some were upset that an employee recently returned expensive items that had been missing for a long time. The items were some of the stuff that were bought with parish money and that the receipts went missing on. People want accountability but many feel things just seem to be getting covered up.

from what I know about him, he is one wacky guy. Was at a funeral a few years ago, dressed as a priest although he was not active at that time. Stalked some young ladies i heard at a local mall. What ever happened to Terry Gress? I remember him from Holy Name on Bailey and then one day he suddenly disappeared. What was the story on him?

This one won't be over 'til the fat nun sings her dirge.

Things sure do sound rotten if an employee has admitted to STEALING from this Parish.

Once the District Attorney steps into the rot pile, you can be sure that no stone will be left unturned.

If there is one who admitted to taking these things, you can bet there are others too.

Persons do not shred financial records without a reason to hide the information.

I thought once you are a priests , always a priest - even if a priest is not "active."

FROM THE NEWS:
Akron funeral director Paris J. Childs was sentenced today to six months in jail for embezzling $175,000 from a Lancaster woman.
----------

Why didn't Fr. Sullivan get jail time? He embezzled a lot more than this guy? Again, the church is like the mob: PROTECTED!

this is all so wrong----------an employee took things that didn't belong to him/her----------got caught---------returned the items-------and life goes on happily----------taking invoices shows a lot of planning--------the employee is sorry about taking the stuff now------they all are sorry when they get caught----------weren't there whistleblowers who got fired for reporting the thefts-------this whole things is corrupt

Who is responsible to clean the snow around the churches that are closed? For example, in NF - who is responsible for the snow removal around Rosary, Lebanon, Holy Trinity and St. George? Divine Mercy on the Niagara (former Holy Trinity) is sold, so I assume the new owners are responsible?

If they do not remove the snow, will the city come in and do it for them and send them the bill like they are doing in the City of Buffalo?

Hmmmm.......
