Re: Recycled Schemes To Close Churches And Schools

I agree with you 100%. This was also done in the Rochester NY diocese, and I can tell you from my summers there it has not increased mass attendance or anything else.

Secret Meeting?

For those of you who are frustrated by the lack of information that has been published by the Archdiocese of St. Louis about what is going on with All Things New, there is a new development. Rumor has it that the meeting for all the priests on this Friday, August 19, will be held at […]
