so the faithful at Our Lady of Sorrows learned today we are losing 3 priests and being sent 2
The Priests BTW that are on their way have in the past by & large been involved almost exclusively with SSPX schools
They are being sent here as a way to stem the tide of students leaving the school.
They are not being sent here (contrary to to what has been said) to foster continuity and a feeling of community
and they most certainly have not come here to "finish" the church , oh no my dear faithful that job falls on your shoulders
You see ,OLOS is falling apart as a parish .The school is emptying . Donations are down .
The Social clubs started up by Fr. S are all but unattended. There is a general attitude a apathy among the parish. So those shoulders better be broad as you have your work cut out for you
So what happened ? What has Changed from when we were all crammed into the old church with 3 Masses and folding chairs set up for over flow, When the social hall was crowded , when the school had a 100+ students ?
The answer my dear faithful is as plain as the nose on our faces. The new church , That unfinished ,barren building we unhappily gather in for the Mass of all time
