Why this petition matters

Started by Victoria Trujillo

Greeting All,

 

For the past few months there have been rumors of a pending sale of the St. Charles Soccer/track field to CNM. Then updated rumors were that CNM wanted to purchase more than just the soccer/track field and wanted to buy the School, Parish Hall, Convent and the entire parking lot from the sidewalk behind the church. Yes, CNM is actively pursuing to buy from the sidewalk on the south side of the school to Coal Avenue.

 

Those rumors are now coming true as surveyor/appraiser or some official staff person from CNM made a visit to St. Charles Borromeo property and examined all buildings, inside and out (except the church) to determine what CNM was purchasing.

 

This would devastate the church as there would no longer be a south parking lot and there would not be any place for parishioners to park, especially since the Archdiocese has already sold the parking lot at Coal Place and Mesa. Current rumors heard this evening is that CNM is now trying to buy all St. Charles Borromeo property including the church. Also heard is staff from the Archdiocese and possibly the Archbishop is meeting with CNM as soon as tomorrow to complete the deal. This is a fast moving behind closed-door deal as there is a timeline for the Archdiocese to raise money for the lawsuit. What makes matters worse is that the Archdiocese did not put St. Charles out to bid as they did other properties to settle the abuse scandal lawsuit. This is a behind closed doors deal between the CNM and the Archdiocese.

 

Now is the time to contact people you know so they can know what is happening at St. Charles Borromeo. We need to do what we can to SAVE THE ST. CHARLES BORROMEO PARISH/SCHOOL COMMUNITY! Let people know how upset you are, make phone calls and involve your friends, make your voice heard. Please do what you can!
