FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 22, 2010
STATEMENT ON SAINT MARGARET MARY PARISH
Father Keith Fennessy, pastor of Saint Margaret Mary parish on Staten Island, announced in June that after careful consideration he was withdrawing his support for the planned sale of the parish convent to the Muslim American Society.
The trustees of the parish have met, as legally required under New York State law, and voted to ratify the pastor's decision.
The Muslim American Society has been informed that the sale of the convent will not take place.
Thank goodness. The people of NYC, and everywhere else, deserve much better than to have the danger of a mosque in their vicinity. If they really have to sell the building, why not sell it to a Jewish synagogue movement? Them you can trust far more.
