The h.q. sale

It is old news (click on this post's title) now -- the Archdiocese of Los Angeles's Jan. 23 sale of its 12-story headquarters building on Wilshire Boulevard to Jamison Properties for $31 million.

ThriftyPayLess donated the building to the Archdiocese in 1995.

Jamison says it has more than 100 properties with more than $3 billion in capitalization http://www.jamisonproperties.com

The Archdiocese will lease back four floors of the building.

Have you heard anything interesting about the sale?

Roger Mahony is a disgrace to the Church. He must be opposed. Any priests who live in his archdiocese and are reading this must unite and petition Rome for his removal. Rome will listen to the clergy more than the laity. This was how Cdl. Law was removed in Boston.

Lent is not only a time for personal reflection and penance. It is a time to fight those who would take the Church down with them.

Dear Joseph,

I'm publishing your assessment of things but also urging everyone to follow Fr. Zuhlsdorf's rule, which I interpret as being that he accepts assessment-type comments but not ones he judges to contain name-calling or insults.

Not sure where to post news tips but there is controversy raging in Lincoln Heights that will affect the Carmelite Sisters. The Voice newspaper reports: "Given the close proximity of the project to their location and the listed hours of operation for the Las Villas facility, sisters of the Carmelite Covenant at Little Flower Missionary House have stated that if the project is built with it's beer and wine license, the convent may have to relocate for the safety of the school's 100+ pre-school and pre-kinder children. The Carmelite nuns have resided at their Lincoln Heights place of worship since 1943." http://neighborhoodcouncil.blogspot.com/2008/01/community-outrage-over-proposed-alcohol.html

Thanks for the alert and for the link. May everyone rise to the defense of the Carmelite Sisters of Lincoln Heights!

It's hard to believe the Sisters would relocate for their students "safety" if a family center moves in next door when kids have been murdered for years outside their doors over drug turf, no?

A family center (especially one that has parties) is part of the solution, not the problem.
