St. Joe's Woes
“We are asking you to join us in our long overdue fight, to take back our parish and save OUR school,” states a flier distributed to parishioners. “After 10 years of complaints, numerous phone calls, and countless letters to the vicar and the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, NOTHING has been done to remove Pastor (James) McVeigh from our parish. Enough of our cries have been ignored. We need to take action against our requests being denied for so many years.”Sounds like St. Joe's has its own grass-roots Tea Party movement going on.
To paraphrase Henry the II: "Who will rid us of this irksome priest?" Unfortuantely for him, Father McVeigh doesn't sound like any Thomas Becket.
