    Well, I’m sure that Blessed Kateri Parish will waste no time in using that $ 1.3 million to expand parking facilities at both St. Cecelia’s and Christ the King.

    Jim,
    Some how I think the DoR will walk off with most of it!

    Jim,
    Some how I think the DoR will walk off with most of it – just like they did at Annunciation!

    Monk, that could well be…..but not if Fr. Tanck gets a hold of it first.

    Jim,
    Besides, what good are more parking spaces when the churches can’t hold all the people now?

    Monk,
    Maybe they could hold Mass “drive in” style on giant movie screens in the parking lot!

  7. It was listed for $1.425 million. So they got a good price. If Providence Housing wanted the property, they would have got half of that.

    A friend in the real estate business tells me that the old Our Lady of Mercy property in Greece is on the market for $1.3 million and that, as far as she knows, there have yet to be any serious nibbles.

    Sad! All these open, empty parish school buildings. If St. John Bosco, or Archangel schools wanted to use any of these schools, they would be denied. Our bishop has no problem allowing Head Start and other public entities to occupy these spaces, but not non diocesan (but still Catholic) schools. What a great shepherd.

    It’s too bad. He is selling all those Catholic resources. If by God’s will, the Catholic school system becomes rejuvenated, we,the
    lay people,are going to have to donate and rebuild the school system, instead of merely taking over what was ours.

    That’s exactly what St John Bosco Schools is doing. Please consider joining the Rosary Society; commit to praying the joyful mystery of the rosary every day for St John Bosco Schools. You can sign up by visiting the website. I would also suggest anyone interested in Catholic Education (which should be all Catholics) to come join the school for morning prayer at 8:30 AM,then observe some of the classes, interview the headmaster and the teachers.Get to know the board members and the families/students. You would be hopeful for the future. If you know anyone willing to invest in this excellent school, visit http://www.johnboscoschools.org and contact John Lyle. We need the entire community to donate and rebuild if we want tuition free Catholic education ,which is exactly what the goal of the Board is.
