Since that is a former Catholic church I'm curious how does they feel about this. Due to laxness of Catholics
outrageous schismatics the S-people have gotten your church. Does those pictures settle you?
I don't think it's fair to say that Roman Catholics were lax in their faith and that's why the church failed. Orthodox churches close all of the time too. Buildings this big are very expensive to maintain. This was originally a church for Polish immigrants, and what likely happened was that they all moved away of time. The ethnic community dismantled and they couldn't afford to keep the place open.
Every time I drive to church I drive past a huge abandoned Presbyterian church. It is enormous and gorgeous. Does that mean that Presbyterians are lax or unfaithful? Nope. It means the demographics changed, and now it's in a "rough" neighborhood where everything is dilapidated. If someone fixed it up, it would really be out of place with all of the other run-down buildings around.
Anyway, I'm just glad such a beautiful church will not be left to rot, but instead will be filled anew with the praises of the Lord Jesus Christ.
