Well, at least they're not fooling anybody anymore. Remember how Chalupka used to sit at the altar during Mass with his hand on his forehead and looking down? He was copying JPII and trying to appear oh-so-spiritual while Miss Preggie looked on admiringly from the pews. Now that's a phony baloney and then some. You'd have to really go some to trump his act.

Tie up Joe Gatto to Paul Burhardin their cottage together. They will have great fun and they will be very gay.

"A STATEMENT TO THE PARISHIONERS OF
ST. STEPHEN REGARDING THE STATUS OF MR. FRANK CANNATA"

I have been asked by Bishop Edward Kimiec to share with you the following information:

"After consulting with Bishop Kimiec, and after prayerful consideration of the situation, we have decided that Frank Cannata should remain on temporary leave from his position as Music Director while his legal mater is pending. In the meantime, I ask you to join me in supporting Frank and in making him feel most welcome in our Church and in our parish community."

"I would like to give a brief further explanation. After considering the opinions of many parishioners sent through various communications, I felt that it might be good to allow Frank to return the weekend of January 23rd. This past week, the Bishop asked me to meet with him to discuss the matter. He had previously talked to me by phone in December.

I want to make it clear that the Bishop was very open and understanding. I felt that he was trying to be sensitive to our situation in our 45-minute meeting. I attempted to communicate as best I could the feelings of the majority of our parishioners and their support for Frank. After consulting with his legal counsel, the Bishop felt that a prudential decision be made to issue the collaborative statement above. Despite my personal feelings, as a priest and pastor in this Diocese, I join him in making this statement.

I apologize to parishioners and to Frank if any course of action on my part has added to the roller coaster of emotions we have all felt during these past two months. I look forward to a time in the future when by prayer and patience we may know healing.

As members of God's people, we have a right to communicate our opinions in a thoughtful and charitable manner. Please feel free to do so to me or to the Bishop (795 Main, Buffalo 14203). You may also call the office of either of us.

Unless there is some major development in this matter, I will not comment beyond this statement in any public forum or to the media.

God Bless!

Fr. Paul Nogaro

Does anyone know how Paul and his lover are doing? Paul recalls his vow of obedience..........
does he remember his other vow? Or isn't that vow important? Perhaps he should give that vow prayerful consideration.

Paul always enjoyed playing dress up. He could invite his pal LiPuma over and have a tea party and dress up for the occasion. Enoug

What a gay show that was. You gotta love all the lace. There were plenty of gays in the pews. One question for the celebrant, did anyone wear any leather? Then it could have been a real leather and lace event just like those put on by the drag queens in Allentown.

I remember Fr. Chris Puehn's comments of may years ago. "Lace,which is worn by women and monsignors."

Other indications I have received indicate that LiPuma has been encouraging priests and lay people to emphasize Joe Moreno's problems and the DOB's attempts of "help" him.

With all due respect, the only problems are LiPuma and Gatto. They have destroyed this diocese in their quest for power and control.

I don't understand how LiPuma got into the chancery in the first place. Every Vice-Chancellor I know has at least a JCL degree. One eparch, I know selected a new vice-chancellor,but immediately enrolled him in canon law school,as he had no specialized canon law training. He got his JCL. Another eparch also "borrowed" a Latin rite Canon lawyer for a few years,until he got his own canonist.
