A new (to me) Catholic blogger has appeared on the DOR scene.
From Journey To A New Pentecost ...
[A]m I missing something? The Catholic school buildings were built from the collective wallets of the laity, but the Diocese of Rochester will not allow these buildings to be leased by independent lay groups (not that the laity matter these days).
... I’d also like to challenge, David Kelly, the Diocesan spokes person who stated that Bishop Clark wants a “stabilize” Catholic school system. The Catholic school system in the Diocese of Rochester has not been stablized since the first reorganization in the eighties, hence the reason why the laity would like a chance at managing Catholic education themselves.
... I don’t think it fair that the laity are not given a chance at running an independent Catholic School with the blessings from their Bishop. They can’t do any worse than the Diocese of Rochester.
I couldn't agree more. Keep up the good work!
