More on the Ivory injunction
A note from today's article:
In addition to barring "live performances directed to an adult audience rather than the general public," the special warranty deed signed by Allen, Rothschild and a representative of the St. Louis City Catholic Church Real Estate Corporation restricted the new owners from using the St. Boniface name and spells out other conditions.
Note: I am not a lawyer, but I did find this legal definitions site for more information on types of deeds. Not enough info? Ask your friendly, neighborhood Missouri lawyer to explain.
St. Boniface, as well as other St. Louis area churches, open or closed, exist as corporate entities formed by the Archdiocese. To see the St. Boniface corporate documents, check the Missouri Secretary of State's office.
Will the show go on tonight? Stay tuned as Judge Philip Heagney decides today if the curtain rises.

In the news, etc.
CCBF's Sr. Marie Charles Buford to retire
Sister is a great asset to Carondelet and will continue to work behind the scenes doing grant writing. Best wishes on your retirement!
Most of the St. Boniface folks who meet on Fridays after the 8AM Mass at Immaculate Conception in Maplewood are doing well. They requested prayers today for Doris and Leo Krull (who are neighbors of a couple of folks) as they are both sick.
Also, Immaculate Conception will be hosting their annual fund raiser, the Country Fair, on Sunday, October 7. Check out IC's weekly bulletin for more details (this PDF is updated weekly).
