The Archdiocese Continues to Violate Canon Law by Confiscating more sacred objects from St. Laurentius

The Archdiocese defiantly continues to carry on their plan to strip St. Laurentius of its sacred objects.  Many of these sacred objects are not material “things” – they have been donated by lifetime parishoners, sometimes in memory of a  loved one who passed away.  The archdiocese continues to disrepect parishoners by blatantly hauling items out of the church in broad daylight.

  1. Why is this being allowed? I as a former parishioner feel so bad that this is happening to St. Laurentius Church. I hope the letter sent to Pope Francis helps restore and re-open St. Laurentius Church real soon!!!

    1. Thank you Carole. Technically it is NOT allowed by canon law. They are in complete defiance of the Vatican. However, the Archdiocese is “allowed” to do whatever they want with the church according to civil law because they own the property. Our canon lawyer is aware of the situation (see her quotes in the Inquirer article) and we have overnighted photos and a letter to the nuncio which was received by him this morning. We are doing what we can.
