The Parish of St. Stanislaus Kostka: Alive but not well

While surfing the net, I came across the The Parish of St. Matthew and St. Stanislaus Kostka.

The URL is Http:// In December of 2005, the parish calendar was portentously imprinted with the above name. In Spring of 2006, the Pastor of St. Matthew and Administrator of St. Stanislaus Kostka approached the possible closure of St. Stanislaus Kostka and proposed the above name for the incorporated parish, already conveniently imprinted on the calendar.

At an advisory meeting for St. Stanislaus, some of us took exception that the possible future name of the possibly incorporated parish was already imprinted on the calendar. The 2007 calendar was duly corrected to read "The Parishes of St. Matthew and St. Stanislaus Kostka" and the weekly bulletins also bear that heading.

But look at the heading of the website? The Archdiocese has not made a decision yet, but it certainly appears that someone wants us closed. A Freudian slip, or something more conscious?
