Well, I admit my first reaction to seeing the bulletin from St. Francis Xavier parish in NYC was a bit harsher than that.
A reader sent me the link to their bulletin which had information about several of their groups at the parish.
Upon studying the bulletin, I soon learned that the groups one would normally expect to find listed in the bulletin of a Catholic church were nowhere to be found. There were no sign ups for Eucharistic Adoration. Sadly missing was the listing for the Altar and Rosary Society. And for the life of me I couldn't locate anything about the Knights of Columbus.
But bless their bleeding progressive hearts, I did learn that there would be no meeting of the Gay Catholic Group until September. The Peace and Justice Committee meets on the 3rd Tuesday of the month and the Spirituality Committee meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month, in case you wanted to go. And the Catholic Lesbians meet in the West Room on the 2nd Friday of the month.
And don't forget the Zen Meditation group is looking for members every Monday at 7pm.
The Church is in a dare I say it, heretical state in some mainstream parishes. Pray and do penance.
