Saint Michael's is located in De Pere, WI. Father Bolduc was the pastor at Saint Michael's for more than 25 years. When he died, the SSPX moved in.
Some of us knew there were problems in the SSPX. Father Bolduc had invited several priests of the Resistance up here before he died (BEFORE IT WAS EVEN ESTABLISHED AS THE RESISTANCE, SOULGUARD.)
Anyway, we were told by the board initially that the SSPX was only to be at Saint Michael's TEMPORARILY. And later we were told that the search for an independent priest WAS NOT HAPPENING, so how does that make the SSPX stay here temporary if they're not even looking for an alternative?
The SSPX (I know this for a fact) has ASKED to have the church turned over to them and that didn't happen, so they're taking the gradual approach. Deal here, deal there. They're even wanting to build a school here. If Father Bolduc thought that it would have thrived here, he would have started one himself! HE WAS THE ONE WHO BOUGHT SAINT MARYS WITH MR. BEEMSTER'S MONEY! (the one who owned the land that Saint Michael's is on.) Father Bolduc was also the FIRST HEADMASTER at Saint Marys! When Father Bolduc was kicked out, Mr. Beemster sued the SSPX for his money back, and won.
We've been kept in the dark about so much here. This latest thing, and the chuckling board members that would not give the details of what was contained in the agreement speaks VOLUMES. Father thought he was picking the right people... people he could trust to do the right thing for the Church up here, but instead, all resistance initially, was squashed like a bug. The people that resisted were marginalized and maligned.
I still consider myself a parishioner of Saint Michael's even though it's been taken over.
This was the last straw.
It's SHOCKING how easily the SSPX totally took over there, with barely a whimper from the people.
Apparently, we deserve this. God is separating the wheat from the chaff.
DEAD FISH SWIM DOWNSTREAM!
