Support your parish—the building needs to be heated and maintained.

And the organ needs to be tuned. PLEASE, don't forget such things. It's an issue in my parish. We don't have the cash to tune and repair a $2 million instrument for less than $5k. There's also the wine, the wafers, sending the vestments to the dry cleaner, etc. Put a request on the memo line on your check if you have to.

Our priest announced after Mass last week that a building inspector had been around and told him that he needed to replace or upgrade the elevator between the main floor and the basement, which is used for coffee, meetings, choir practice, library, and the like. Estimated cost: $50,000. And we’re having problems paying the heating bills or maintaining the cemetery.

He said the church would be “shut down” in a year if it isn’t done. Interesting. How would that play out with the Constitution?

When will people come to their senses and realize that this sort of unfunded government mandate is destroying our country and is no longer affordable?
