We’re finally starting to see stories in the local press showing that parish sit-ins are not monolithic, that in fact, they usually represent a very small group.
In this article about St. Jeremiah’s in Framingham, it says that only 12 to 20 people were part of the sit-in. The organizers of the protest said they have a list of 110 people willing to help, but what does that mean? Are there 110 people actively fighting the closing or are there 110 people on their mailing list? Either way, it represents a small fraction of the whole parish.
