    Take a look at the title of this site---"St. Stanislaus Kostka Parish @ St. JUohns, Apostle Evangelist Church"---I know St. Johns is not involved directly in the dispute. If you are a parishioner of St. Johns, why did you allow the Archbishop the use of your church for Polish masses.; which in itself has strongly divided even further the conflict. In a way, St. Johns is part of the conflict now and you let the Archbishop do it. His attitude of"my way or the highway" is not the approach of a spiritual leader. This is the approach of a pure business in a layoff or in a financial bind. What gets me about you is that you think that we as members cannot question the church hierarchy?! How about the other parishes in the St. Louis Diocese that are not under the control of the Archdiocese. Their boards do not answer to the Archbishop. I will continue to support St. Stanislaus Kostka Parish in No. St. Louis,but not St. Johns.As, I have said before, I will double my usual contribution to the Archdiocese Development Appeal and send it to St. Stanislaus Parish on No. 20th Street. This will be so noted on my ADA pledge card. I will continue to support my primary parish. I am a liberal Roman Catholic, who takes great pride in my religion and visits many beautiful churches through out the St. Louis area for Sunday Mass. I hope you have a nice day, because I have a nice day every day.

    I am a supporter of St. Stanislaus Parish and not at St. Johns. I believe Archbishop Burke will see one of the problems he alone has created when the Arch. Development Appeal is in full swing and the goal is not met. I personally will double my usual contribution to the appeal and send it to St. Stanislaus as a protest to the Archbishop. This will be so noted on my pledge card. I predict that there will be a 20% drop from last year.
