St. Stans shops for affiliation

Monday, 17 February 2014 06:50 Published in Local News

   A year after severing ties with Rome, St. Stanislaus Kostka Church is looking for an affiliation that will allow it to keep its Catholic ties.  Reverend Marek Bozek tells the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the church wants to have options.  

   Bozek tells the paper he's partial to the Episcopal Church because it's in full communion with the Old Catholic Church of Utrecht.  The European body separated from Rome more than 100 years ago over issue of papal infallibility, but its sacraments are seen as valid by the Vatican.  Bozek says they don't actually want to become Episcopalian, but would like to work toward becoming an Old Catholic parish.  

   St. Stans is also talking with the Ecumenical Catholic Church, the Polish National Catholic Church, and even some more marginal groups, like Roman Catholic Womenpriests.

   The church just north of downtown had governed its own finances since the 19th century.  It's been in a battle for its survival and autonomy since 2003, when the archdiocese first asked the parish to hand over control of its property and assets. Church officials refused and were excommunicated, as was Rev. Bozek.

 

   In 2008 the archdiocese sued for control of the church, but a St. Louis Circuit Court ruled in 2012 in favor of St. Stans.  The archdiocese agreed last year to dismiss its appeal, after St. Stans agreed not to affiliate itself with the Vatican.

Freezing rain; icy road; salt trucks on patrol

Monday, 17 February 2014 04:27 Published in Local News
 
   Freezing rain is taking it's toll on area roadways.  Icy conditions caused dozens of crashes Monday morning.
   Icy conditions are blamed for four accidents in a five-mile stretch of Interstate 55 before 7:00 a.m.  Police say two people were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries after a three-car crash at I-55 and Lindbergh.  Police also say a car slid on the ice and struck an emergency vehicle working that accident.  
   Police say most of the accidents were caused by drivers going too fast for the slick road conditions.
   MoDOT District Engineer Becky Allmeroth says crews began pretreating area roads at midnight. Allmeroth says if motorists in these areas can delay travel until late morning it will help.  
   MoDOT crews are using a combination of salt brine, rock salt and beet juice to improve areas roadways during this storm.
   With warmer weather on the horizon, St. Louis City Streets Director Todd Waelterman says crews will have to be ready to switch gears, literally overnight.  Waeltermann tells Fox 2 News that today's winter weather will quickly be replaced by Pothole season. 
   "You know the roads have opened up considerably, and with the warmer weather, you're going to see a lot of movement of this pavement," Waelterman said.  "So it is going to be pothole week."
