Boston diocese gutted
This is so sad, on a very human level. Putting aside for the moment all of the nonsense that's gone on in Boston for the last couple decades, the fact is that lots of good, pious Catholics are having their parishes shut down because a few paedophile priests couldn't keep it in their pants.
Thirty parishes is the number being thrown around. I wonder if there were even that many parishes total in my own home diocese.
UPDATE: Make that 65 parishes.
