we wonder where our youth are

pictured is the ball diamond across from my parish, on parish property, been there  since forever, used to be the sight of the high school built by the parish and later sold to the school district, bought back and razed when it closed, and the diamond remained now back on parish property, school building was razed about 20 years ago. been in use by little league for ever, Pastors used to sit on their porch or come out into the stands and watch, mingle with the people, and the kids appreciated it.


now it is being dismantled, I am told the diocese is concerned about liability, so chase the boys off, am I the only one who sees the problem here, the sterile church, its not that there is no place to play but it is just sad, and ironic, chase them off to the government sports field complex, we don’t want them here
