Two more face excommunication at St. Stan
By Tim Townsend

ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
08/11/2008ST. LOUIS — Two more parishioners of St. Stanislaus Kostka Church face excommunication after being elected to the church’s lay board Sunday.In letters hand-delivered Saturday night, Bishop Robert Hermann, the Archdiocese of St. Louis’ interim leader, warned eight parishioners who were running for positions on the board of their possible fate. Some of the parishioners returned home in the evening to find the letter taped to their front doors. In the letter, Hermann noted that a Vatican decree in May said holding a seat on the St. Stanislaus board “constitutes an ‘evident’ act of schism. ” Schism is defined in church law as “the refusal of submission to the Roman Pontiff or of communion with the members of the Church subject to him.” (Probably the work of the same people who secretly video taped the women’s ordination ceremony that brought Sr. Louise Lears her letter of excommunication.)
