Facebook Strikes Again!
Have you ever googled yourself? The Project does, simply to see the interesting places we show up. And, too, to catch would-be plaigarists red-handed.
One such search revealed a glowing Facebook endorsement from someone named Gina. I have no idea who she is, but her mostly kind words, and those of her friends, are appreciated.
A few comments, though:
1. I did not say that Incarnation of Our Lord has a pristine upper church. Nothing of the sort. My exact words:
Physically, the church is manageable shape. There’s some minor water damage, but overall it’s still pretty strong. Father P shared his concerns about preserving it, and the church has started a pledge drive for that very purpose. Still, I don’t think he needs to lie awake at night thinking about it. Not yet, anyway.
2. The "Yawn" rating for St. John the Evangelist is not any sort of indictment of the quality or excitement of their services. As an emergency rating, it denotes their level of danger. In this case, there is none. Hence, "Yawn."
That said, St. John is certainly not "buck wild." You want wild? Go to a Fat Girl parish. St. John's is nice and inviting, but certainly much farther down on the Love-o-Meter scale.
3. St. Ambrose and Our Lady of Ransom are ugly. No Project coverage needed.
4. And St. Helena? No more explanation needed.
