It’s ours, my precious, we wants it

Filed under: Diocese of Niagara — David Jenkins @ 9:55 pm

michael-gollumThe Diocese of Niagara wants the church building that the people who attend the parish of St. Hilda’s paid for and maintain – still.

They want the rectory, bought and paid for by the parishioners of St. Hilda’s; they would like to either boot the rector out or make him pay rent, because he not only disagreed with the diocese, he acted on it. He was mean to them.

The diocese froze St. Hilda’s bank account in an attempt to steal their money. This backfired, I gather, since the account is still frozen, so no-one can touch the money.

The rector’s and people’s wardens were mean to the diocese too, so the diocese is suing them to teach them a lesson.

The diocese has taken the Parish Records of St. Hilda’s, including the parish roll for ‘safe keeping’; the current parish roll contains the list of names of everyone who voted – unanimously – to join ANiC.

St. Hilda’s parishioners: bolt your doors at night.
