My new posting

By now both folks in Mt. Adams and down at St. Rose know this, so I'll post something here. The archbishop has named me parochial administrator of Holy Cross-Immaculata Parish, and also Old St. Mary's Parish in Over The Rhine. I will assume those duties June 17. My responsibilities at the Archdiocese continue.

Many will ask, what is a "parochial administrator"? It is essentially a pastor, except a pastor is named for a set term, but a parochial administrator has no set term. It's not so unusual in other dioceses for someone to be named administrator initially, although not so common here. However, Archbishop Schnurr has done it more frequently lately, in large measure I think because of uncertainty related to providing coverage for parishes when there are too few priests. In other words, the Archbishop needs to keep his options open.

I will miss the people of Saint Rose, who have been wonderful to get to know and tone with.

I am eager to meet the people at Immaculata and at Old Saint Mary's.

CORRECTION (as of May 21):

My new assignment will not include Old Saint Mary. The two parishes were paired under the prior pastor, and so when I was considered for it, it was as for both posts. When I received word, I mistakenly assumed the same arrangement would continue. (This is what happens when you are on the road and take phone calls while driving!) In fact, Father Jon Paul Bevak will be administrator of Old Saint Mary's. He will be great!

I'm very sorry for the confusion.

You are being sent into Hell forever ... outside of the God’s Catholic Church.

The vatican-2 heretic cult (founded in 1965 at the Vatican) *cannot possibly be* the Catholic Church … since it *enforces* the opposite, the opposite, and the opposite of the Catholic Dogma (the actual Catholic Faith).

The Catholic Faith *is not* Bible interpretation ... it is the Catholic infallible Sources of Dogma (which has been ruthlessly hidden from you, and which you must know). The Catholic Church didn’t even define the Bible’s New Testament Canon until 397 A.D. at the Council of Carthage.

The founding documents of the vatican-2 heretic cult … the “vatican-2 council” documents … have well over 200 heresies *against* prior defined Dogma.

Site > Immaculata-one (dot) com

Section 12 > Anti-Christ vatican-2 heresies (50 listed) ... followed by many Catholic corrections.

Sections 13 and 13.1 > Photographic *proof* of heresy at the Vatican.

Because of … the Catholic Dogma on automatic excommunication for heresy or for physical participation in a heretic cult (such as the V-2 cult) …

… we were all placed, body and soul, outside of Christianity (the Catholic Church) on 8 December 1965 … the close date of the “council”.

Section 13.2 > Catholic Dogma on automatic excommunication for heresy or participating in a heretic cult such as ... vatican-2, lutheran, methodist, evangelical, etc.

Section 19.1 > Dogma on Abjuration for *re-entering* Christianity (the Catholic Church) … after being automatically excommunicated. A Formal Abjuration is also provided here.

Section 13.3 > Matt 16:18, Gates of Hell scripture ... is *not* about the Papacy ... defined at four Dogmatic Councils.

Section 10.2 > Returning to a state of grace, in places and times when Confession is not available, like now.

Section 13.6 > You're not a Catholic priest and never were.

Golly, this new assignment will be tougher than I thought!

Affinity parishes don't have a chance any longer. It's all about the business culture. When you're appointed Pastor,versus these new titles, your career is over.
