The Bishop who closes a church on the Feast of the Assumption

Bishop McCormack - both sides of the story.

Another guy that I don't want at my funeral.: "But this doesn't always have to be a loss. It's an event that can be healing and hopeful."

Fidelity of Voice of the Faithful Group Comes Under Scrutiny again

Is their agenda to save Churches or to promote a radical agenda among the Faithful?

All these parishes probably have been net contributors to the Archdiocese.

"Archbishop O'Malley tells us he is a Franciscan, but St. Francis didn't close churches, he built them," said DiBenedetto, tears forming in his eyes.

However, beware Voice of the Faithful. Their leadership seems to think that they know better than the teaching of the Church in matters of faith and morals. Much better for the Faithful to organise themselves for these protests.

What a great history.

All destroyed in the name of "consolidation".
