Fr. Brendan Buckler, center, pastor of St. Elizabeth of the Hill Country Catholic Church in Boone, North Carolina, celebrates a Latin Mass (Tom Rokoske)
This is an interesting article in light of our discussion on how to keep the young Catholics who are actually coming to church from leaving.
This is NCR’s take on a parish in Boone, NC whose pastor, four years ago, began to take the parish to the right and how people my age and older decided that they would create a garage Mass.
They abandoned the young parishioners in the parish for their own clique.
Of course if there were no young priests and seminarians inspired by Pope St. John Paul II, there would be no priests or seminarians. This is what NCR would prefer, a lay run Church where priests and seminarians are not needed since the Francis effect isn’t producing them as the John Paul effect still does.
