Diocese of Niagara gives buildings to ANiC

Filed under: April 1 — David Jenkins @ 12:14 am

After a time of discernment, Bishop Michael Bird has realised that the Diocese of Niagara has absolutely no use for the buildings that are presently part of a legal dispute between the diocese and ANiC. In keeping with Living the Vision, prophetic social justice making and pursuing excellence, Bishop Bird has come to understand that the Christian thing to do is to immediately stop all legal proceedings against St. George’s Lowville, St. Hilda’s Oakville and Church of the Good Shepherd St. Catharines.

The diocese will also fulfil the promise made to St. Hilda’s in 1965 and pave its parking lot.

  3. I was beginning to wonder what sweat lodge Bird had spent too much time in.

  6. What an absolute DELIGHT to read this spoof! I could almost bask in your well-chosen words, loving the thought of such wisdom and generosity at this blessed Easter time. Sigh …..
