No matter how the rcc tries to gloss it over by saying it's a parish decision, the bottom line is,well, the bottom line.

Shirly... Can you do us all a favor? Don't comment on things that you are ignorant to. If you were involved in any part of St. Joseph the Worker, you would know that they are a community that focuses on worship and faith. Have you ever even set foot in the church? Or talked to the pastor? I met him a few weeks ago. He is an awesome man of God with a passion for ministry.

If you look at the public record, both Ascension and Holy Rosary properties were sold for less than your house is probably worth. So I guess the church isn't so about money now is it?

Thanks for keeping your ignorant misinformed comments to yourself.

Oh, please, "Un". I grew up rc, in the Ascension Parish. I have family members in religious life. I know EXACTLY whereof I speak. It is not about the parishioners, who I am sure are wonderful people. It is all about the $$$$$$ for the rcc. As for the last paragraph in your comment: Judge not, lest ye be judged.
