Bishop Accepts Fr. Michatek’s Retirement

December 3rd, 2010, Promulgated by Dr. K

From the Holy Trinity bulletin:

It will be interesting to see who ends up leading Holy Trinity come next June. Holy Trinity is a nice suburban church which has a high altar and a tabernacle with chapel veil. A few too many Communion services held there for my taste (zero would be better), but an otherwise solid parish.

Fr. Bill Michatek

    I was a member of HT until about 2 years ago when I needed to relocate for a job change. Fr. Mich is a nice man but I do think he has been ready to go for some time — his attention to detail has been off for several years. Things like, there are invalid consecrations performed on a regular basis (the whole totally gluten free thing). And if you Google the names of some of the prominent and visible members of the lay ministries, their names come up as involved with vigorously dissenting CINO advocacy groups.

    To be totally fair, the consecration issue is technically hearsay, but at the level of “everyone knows about it” in the pews. YMMV. But the dissention issue I can personally attest to, and it is a cause of grave scandal. But it does seem like if the new pastor just is diligent, the parish has a lot to offer.

    Shhhhh, the Bishop will send us a Sr. Joan if you keep referring to as a solid parish.

    With all due respect, is this the same Fr. William Michatek that is probably referred to as “William Mihatek – Holy Trinity, Webster” in the list of 35 signees listed here?

    I think his announcing his retirement in the year before Bishop Clark retires is not a coincidence.

    I believe he’s also the same one who moved the tabernacle off the central axis during the remodeling of St. John in Spenerport.
