Break from Church is Option for Embattled Polish Parish



St. Louis – Parishioners at St. Stanislaus Kostka are considering their options in the wake of a decision by the Vatican this week.

The Holy See says St. Stanislaus should hand over control of its assets to the Archdiocese of St. Louis, as Archbishop Raymond Burke has demanded.

Options for the parish include capitulating to the Archdiocese, breaking from the Roman Catholic Church, or transforming from a house of worship to a museum.

The parish's board of directors will consider the various options and present them to the congregation for a vote.
