Why are you accusing me of not reading the article, when they're these two lines from the artice?

In the past, the pilgrims stopped along the route to pray and rest in the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception or Holy Ghost Church, both in downtown Denver.

However, the last several years, parishioners from the two churches complained that the pilgrims were leaving behind Pius X literature and trying to recruit members, communications director Jeanette DeMelo told Rocky Mountain News.

Chaput banned them from saying Mass there in 2002. That's not news. What's news is the recent directive that they're not even allowed in the churches. Period.

If this has been going on for a couple of years, I can't believe nothing was said, no warning given before. And just how many years would you tolerate someone trying to recruit you in your church?

As I understand it, from the comments on Fr. Z's blog, they're not banned as individuals, but as an organized group.
