More Fame and Fortune

The Project loves getting quoted as an authority. Especially when the quoter doesn't even bother contacting us.

Case in point: this March 19 article from The Bulletin,
a sort of reincarnation of the once-famous Philadelphia Bulletin.

The article concerns itself mostly with Assumption BVM, but at the end it weirdly shifts perspective to good 'ole St. Boniface. There it uses information that is pretty much copied directly from our recent Echoes of St. Boniface post, albeit phrased as if they actually talked to us. They didn't, in case you're wondering.

Oh well. At least they're good enough to attribute us as the source, and the Project never, ever turns down free press.


  1. Keep up the good work, Project!

    May I make a recommendation?

    St. Mark's Church on Frankford Ave. Can't miss it, it's next to the El.
    Yes, it is Episcopal, not Catholic. But probably more ornate than some of the Catholic churches you've seen.
    It has Stations of the Cross in stained glass. I repeat: Stations of the Cross in STAINED GLASS!
    Also, the priest is a friendly, funny guy who will probably give you the history of the church , a tour, and then some. He may let you up in the bell tower (seriously!) where you can play the bells by hand. Yes, by hand. Nothing electronic. And the whole neighborhood hears you play.
    Also of note: The main altar with carvings of the 12 apostles. Too awesome for words, you have to see it.

  2. Project,
    I couldn't agree more with the beauty of St. Marks.
    I live up the street from it. If you do visit, give a call. We'll show you around the area.

  3. I didn't care for the faux Bulletin's (NOTHING like its illustrious predecessor, believe me)'s comments about Mary Daly.

    "Daly’s tragic personal odyssey" - what was so tragic about it?
