Sad, To See Another Church Close It Doors Because Of Financial Problems and Predatory Lending Practices By A Bank.

Reader according to research, on an average day in the United States, nine churches close their doors for good. This isn’t often talked about, partly because it’s not exactly breaking news. Church professionals know the trends: church membership and religious affiliation are declining. Relatively few churches are growing. It’s particularly hard to talk about your own church’s demise. It’s not easy to say what sometimes needs to be said: “It’s time for our church to close.”

Religious leaders in Bridgeport announced last Saturday that one of the biggest churches in the city was shutting down this past week.  Parish officials say the Cathedral of the Holy Spirit on Union Avenue is in foreclosure and the bank will take possession of the building. According to former Bishop Kenneth Moale's wife, the church is in need of $150,000 by this past Monday to keep the bank from foreclosing on the church.

  1. Is Aretha Franklin by any chance related to Kirk Franklin? They sure seem to be cut out the same mold.

    1. Anonymous what do you mean by your statement: They sure seem to be cut out the same mold? I don't get it!

    2. I mean...the two are mystical in a way that is spiritually symbolic...if one would use his senses to see them and note the visual of their appearances, to touch them and the vibe of the energy in their art, to hear their sound of expressions in harmony...oh there is a connection there...some kind of mental and emotional association even in their appellation and title...(LOL)...
