Assumption Windsor to close -- oldest Catholic parish in Canada west of Montreal

Assumption Church of Windsor, the oldest parish in Canada west of Montreal is to be closed immediately. It is also the home of the traditional Mass community in Windsor.

The church needs $10,000,000 in repairs.

The amount paid out due to priests convicted of sexual crimes in the Diocese of London.

I am speechless.

In other words victimize the Latin Mass community.... victimize the Catholic generations who built that church..... victimize the memory of Catholicism in Windsor....

So much for the "new" evangelization....sell, close down, destroy, demoralize....

I'm sitting here a little stunned after reading this. Assumption was my home for four years - it was also my introduction to the TLM. It's a beautiful, active parish. Another pastoral decision?

Kyrie eleison.
