The LuLac Edition #862, June 29th, 2009



Well another parish that was over 100 years old closed yesterday. St. Mark's in Inkerman closed its doors. However in Wilkes Barre at St. Nick's, members of the Hispanic community joined that parish and called St. Nicholas their own. The new members increase St. Nick's family roster to about 1300. Meantime one year ago today, the church I grew up in, St. John the Baptist Church on William Street in Pittston closed its doors. The church is still standing, not sold, essentially rotting. Wasn't there supposed to be a memory wall installed in the basement of St. John the Evangelist and a handy dandy video tribute with memories tape recorded by parishioners of the Baptist and St. Casmir's? Oh well, it doesn't matter. By next year, it'll be a Wendy's. Here's the video:

Maybe all you bitter ones who think all these mostly empty churches should stay open, could cough up some xtra bucks for all the bills to stay open. Give a few to the Bishop too. He can't ever seem to have enough! It's a sad truth in all religious communities. Sign of the times I guess.

I just think he want's to create his 15 minutes of fame. If you are Catholic, guess what comes with it. Can't be one without the other. I guess YOU can though, it's your blog and you'll always have the last word. Hmmmm, sort of like your buds on WILK!
