Meanwhile, Boston Globe reporter Bella English continues her crusade against the Church with another one in her series of long, long articles on St. Albert’s parish in Weymouth, Mass., a parish with some big problems of catechesis.
The parish is slated to close this Sunday, but some of the people there continue to plan a fight to re-open. They’ve already got a lawsuit planned, including the novel argument that the church belongs to the parishioners and not the archdiocese. Seems to me they should check the legal precedents more closely. This has already been decided in federal court. Of course, the St. Albert’s people’s money is just as green as everyone else’s so why shouldn’t the lawyers pursue a hopeless case while earning their fee.
