Honestly Dan I always thought the CC helped support the schools and parishes.<quoted text>
They don't have that much cash laying around, and most of the parish/school closings are due to demographic shifts. They aren't viable or the areas they served don't have the population they once did.
These people ..yes they are poor..But they have language and heritage on common.
South Fla. Is full of Cuban..Haitian churches. Others...And these these were church home to many people.
It's really sad that they close and get the buildings sold out from under them.
I was not being cruel in my comments about the settlements..
I just wonder if the poorer parishes are paying the price ..
And why can't the Vatican bank help..
