Judge Rules in Favor of St. Louis Polish Parish; Rules It Can Control Its Own Assets and Property

The Christian Broadcast Network website reports today (March 16, 2012) that a court has ruled that a predominantly Polish parish in St. Louis can control its own assets and property, thus giving it a long-sought victory over the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of St. Louis.

Judge Bryan Hettenbach yesterday decided in favor of St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Church.

St. Stanislaus pastor, Marek Bozek, says he hopes the decision opens the way for new dialogue with the Catholic Church.

The archdiocese said it plans to appeal yesterday's ruling.
