Therefore, brethren, stand fast; and hold the traditions which you have learned, whether by word, or by our epistle. 2 Thes 2:15

I live in Wauwatosa. This church screams 1960s. The exterior design is pretty depressing. The church itself occupies a hill in the Tosa Village, which is a historic, quaint area with lots of shops, cafes and restaurants. Imagine if this church had been built according to a traditional style... sadly, it's also a very liberal parish. Years back, a friend walked out when the priests spoke about ordaining women priests, he [the priest] was given a standing O by the parishioners.
Yikes! Too bad, sounds like an opportunity for evangelization lost.
This was the parish of His Excellency, Bp Fabian Bruskiewicz. Then Abp Weakland put a raging liberal in there to tear down everything Bruskiewicz had built and maintained.
Is that a plant on top of the tabernacle? Sheesh.
And the Communion Rail has been removed. This was once a thriving parish. No more.
