Parish In Bray (26)

Word seems to be circulating in the Parish of Our Lady Queen of Peace Bray that a date has been set for Parish Priest Fr. Laurence (Larry) White to MOVE ON..................

At the moment "those in the know" have heard from his "confidante" in the workplace that he will be MOVING ON................a year 'earlier' than that given to him when he was installed as Parish Priest for 9 years - 7 years ago!!!!

This looks like he has already received his "walking papers" and now the clock is ticking - tick, tock, tick, tock to the relief of MANY in the Parish until September 2010 (instead of 2011).

The way things are going it could quite possibly mean that this Unfair Dismissal case will still be haunting him LONG after he has left the Parish at the rate things are going with hearings and appeals and LONG waits in between.

What a depressing thought and what a dreadful legacy for this Parish Priest to leave behind when he is finally RUN OUT OF TOWN.

He will forever be remembered in the Parish for nothing more than the BAD WAY HE HANDLED A SIMPLE SITUATION BECAUSE HE COULD NEVER SAY HE WAS WRONG AND DO THE RIGHT THING.

That just goes to show how being stubborn can put you in the history books.

What wonderful news. An end is in sight of the reign of the 'unholy' one. We can actually begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel........

Tick tock, tick tock another day closer to his departure.........

Ah now, we hear Father Whiter than White (Fr. Larry to his close friends) has taken leave since last weekend on a WEE HOLIDAY to gather his strength for his upcoming COURT APPEARANCE when all the world will be a stage to him like his Altar at Our Lady Queen of Peace in Bray where he prances around in his frocks on auto pilot never a word or gesture different any day of the year - HE IS A ROBOT PRIEST. His funerals are so monotomous those attending sign 'Oh God not AGAIN that same insincere speil of claptrap when autopilot is on full throttle once again'. God alone grants patience to those who sit during his identical homilies and stupid stories and recollections month in month out year in year out.

He needs a new script writer. Goes to show how much NON PREPARATION he puts into the RELIGIOUS side of his life compared to...........well ahem, the OTHER side of his life.......

Sure when you run across the Altar with 2 minutes to Mass time and barely have time to throw off the anorak like Bertie's and on the frock what more can you expect.

We and our friends have a little doze through his 22 minute Masses and sure God be good to us we miss not a thing for there is not a thing to miss.....

Now we hope the Whiter than White one will be looking a bit better than the train wreck he has resembled for some time past when he makes his houdini reappearance.

Maybe the good Fathers on this site, as requested by a reader in UK, can let us have a look at the other side of the coin - Sr. Peg? We have had enough views of "The Frocked One" and we don't mean Boy George. Sure we are all-a-foaming at the mouth to see the face that goes with the hit parade CD transcript.

By any chance will there be a new release in the CD stakes to get into the charts.

Before we take your leave......let us wish the LADY MARGARET good luck in the upcoming Perry Mason Court Drama on October 27.

PARISH IN BRAY 27

4 years after Parish Secretary Margaret O'Hehir left Our Lady Queen of Peace the Parish Website FINALLY
has a VERY BASIC Powerpoint show of photos from the Rededication Ceremony on its website.

This is 5+ years AFTER Margaret had herself PERSONALLY set up a FIRST CLASS UPGRADED POWERPOINT display of ALL PARISH EVENTS

FIRST COMMUNIONS,
CONFIRMATIONS,
VISITS BY PAPAL NUNCIO,
ARCHBISHOP DIARMUID MARTIN,
BISHOP MARTIN DRENNAN,
BUGISI TWIN PARISH DINNER,
CHRISTMAS BAZAAR,
FAMILY FUN DAY etc.

on both the Parish computer in the Parish Office for Parishioners to view and her own laptop that she used for Parish work
(NOW CONFISCATED AT FR. LARRY WHITE'S REQUEST BY 3 GARDAI FROM BRAY GARDA STATION).

My God it has taken them A LONG LONG time to set up what was already there so long ago by someone who knew what she was doing in her job!

The Parish Priest Fr. Larry White always looking for more photo ops and publicity has now started another scheme.

It is mentioned on Parish Website as being a project between Parish of Our Lady Queen of Peace, St. Vincent de Paul and Order of the Knights of St. Columbanus.

They are hiring a project co-ordinator working 20 hours per week.

No doubt this is a brainchild TO KEEP THE FAS SCHEME GOING IN THE PARISH AND THE PERSON APPOINTED WILL BE ON A 20 HRS. PER WEEK FAS SCHEME POSSIBLY FUNDED THROUGH THEIR PROGRAMME AT THE VILLA.

The more projects they think up and the more people they hire through FAS the more RICH PICKINGS for the Parish of Our Lady Queen of Peace and INSTANT GLORY for Fr. Larry White who is in need of GOOD publicity right now and has appointed himself Chairman of this new group - he the same one WHO DOES NOT ALWAYS CARE FOR OTHERS RIGHTS.

No doubt the job in any case has been given to yet another CRONY so don't bother to apply!!!


Perhaps he has got this latest idea from his 'ahem' friend Sr. Peggy McArdle who works in the inner city on similar projects -

do check out Parish in Bray 24 (UPDATE) for a recap......

He has to keep trying to come up with new ideas and associate his ideas with reputable organisations to keep the FAS scheme going in the Parish with all the negative publicity that has gone in its direction regarding former FAS employees at the Parish.

Extract from Bray People newspaper this week


Wednesday September 23 2009

A NEW PROJECT aimed at assisting homeless people in the Bray area to find suitable accommodation and return to independent living was launched this week.

' Sa Bhaile' is a joint project of Queen of Peace Parish, St. Vincent de Paul and the Order of the Knights of St. Columbanus.

The project will assist homeless people in the Bray area to secure accommodation and will then provide its clients with a programme which will help them return to independent living.

'We are aware of the problem of homelessness in Bray and we plan to make a contribution towards alleviating the situation by assisting a number of homeless people to secure accommodation,' said Sa Bhaile chairman Fr. Larry White PP.

' It is also very important that homeless people who secure accommodation are given the supports that they need towards a return to independent living and we plan to provide such supports over an extended period.'

Sa Bhaile is currently recruiting a Project Coordinator who will manage the project and it is hoped that the first clients will be placed in suitable accommodation over the coming months.

Highly Amused and Disappointed Parishioner said...

Well now that is a good one.

For a man who cannot even run his own Parish properly and is always MISSING from it he now thinks he can take on an extra role to Parish Priest - that of Chairman of this homeless group!!!!

Holy God has he suddenly exchanged his Priests frocks for a Superman costume? Maybe he has the skinny legs to fit in his tights!!!

After Fr. White HAD A LAZY 4 AND A HALF MONTH SUMMER BREAK OF NO 1.05 p.m. Mass for Parishioners since June until October 12 he has finally decided to bring this Mass back for us. He was in no rush because only one Mass a day meant with his Chaplain present he only had to say ONE MASS EVERY 2ND DAY which suited him fine to take off when he felt like it WHICH IS OFTEN.

Has the 1.05 p.m. Mass come back because Fr. White is NOW IN THE SPOTLIGHT with the Archbishop's man Monsignor Enda Lloyd installed just down the road at Holy Redeemer Parish to KEEP AN EYE ON HIM and his goings on and would not like to think he was being a layabout with only ONE MASS A DAY for that long.

Lets hope Enda keeps a tight rein on this radical within the Church.

Let us suggest that HE SHARE HIS BIG FAMILY HOME WITH THE FIRST HOMELESS PEOPLE HE HAS PROMISED TO HOUSE IN THE PARISH AND INTEGRATE BACK INTO THE COMMUNITY.

Why not Fr. White you have had that big family home all to yourself for the last 7 years and time you had some MORE DESERVING HOMELESS SHARING IT WITH YOU.

Now go on Fr. White give us a yes YOUR DOOR IS OPEN. When can they move in.

Martin said...

There is no word in the Parish that the suggestion above is to be adopted as right it should.

Why should this PP live in a huge family house when an adequate apartment across the street in the Church grounds is available. Ah sure I forgot he moved out of there once before because it was not private enough and sure he needs a big house to entertain his "friends".

No belt tightening in the Queen of Peace Bray. They have killed the fatted calf and are keeping it all to themselves. They don't welcome back Prodical Sons either.

No matter how much we donate they are still begging for more. They take in over a Thousand Euro in membership fees for the Retired Seniors group, my mum would not touch it with a barge pole.

They rake in money next month selling tickets to the Parish dance at €25 a pop with obligatory purchase (or you get the long face) of a book of raffle tickets for €20.

They will be flogging the Parish choir CD's at €10 a pop too.

Fr. White does not even use the prayers of the day sometimes which I have pointed out to him because he can find others that are shorter and can cut the Mass time by a few minutes. This man is all for a quick getaway.

Was he not ordained as a man of God to serve God's people. He does not serve us in Bray. I have stopped donating to the Church and will not repay the debts he brought on us with his own NAMA style leadership where we good holy people trying to do our best will be paying for his mistakes for the next 10 years.

Why let a lovely holy man like Fr. Derek Smith leave Holy Redeemer after a year and we are stuck with someone like Fr. White for so long.

This time last year we thought we were rid of him when he disappeared for 5 months - meant to be ill he said. Did not look sick to me. Probably took a sun holiday paid for by our money in the basket. Well not mine as I don't fund HIM any longer.

CLARE said...

You've said it Martin. Another added money making scheme is Christmas Fair Dec. 13 - maybe everyone will become 'SUPERSTITIOUS' for the day and not attend. One can wish.

Parish is barely over their 50% target for current years fundraising (3/4 of year gone!) with the latest begging notice on this weeks Parish website. LONG way to go Fr. White - the neglected souls in your Parish are not coughing it up as fast as you wish are they.

Why would they with you spending faster than they can donate?????

Is FAS not as profitable as you hoped???? With its Supervisor in the Parish earning a mighty fortune for acting the female Sgt. Major maybe halving her salary to go with her job qualifications and experience would add more to your meagre coffers but then she is in your pocket so you can't do that now because she has you so obviously "hen-pecked". I see it every day.

BREAKDOWN below as on Parish website

The Church Repair
Fund-raising target for 2009 is €20,000.
Your support has been greatly appreciated. As we have now reached €11,000 (approx).

We still have three Fundraising events this year -

Our Parish Raffle,

The Parish Dinner Dance

Thursday 19th November

and The Christmas Fair.

Sunday 13th December

We hope to reach our target with your support.

Thank you once again.

DO YOU HAVE TO BE ONE OF THE INNER CIRCLE OF FR. LARRY WHITE'S TO APPLY FOR HOUSING FOR THE HOMELESS UNDER THE QUEEN OF PEACE HOUSING SCHEME?

DOES THAT MAN CARE THAT HE PUTS PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR JOBS WHO HAVE MORTGAGES AND COULD END UP HOMELESS LOOKING FOR HOUSING FROM THE UNHOLY PARISH OF HIS?

DOUBT IT. HE CARRIES ON LIKE COCK OF THE ROOST IN QUEEN OF PEACE, A PARISH THAT BELONGS TO ITS PEOPLE, NOT TO HIM, LIKE HE DOES NOT HAVE A CARE IN THE WORLD.

WATCH HIM WALTZ AROUND IN HIS VARIOUS COLOURED FROCKS LIKE ONE DANNY LA RUE....................AN ACTOR IF EVER I SAW ONE. THE ALTAR AT QUEEN OF PEACE IS HIS STAGE - HE IS THE ACTOR - CONNING THE CONGREGATION TO DROP THEIR MONEY INTO THE BASKETS FOR A 'VERY BAD SHOW' NOT WORTH THE ENTRANCE FEE.

WE HAVE SEEN BETTER PERFORMANCES IN AN AMATEUR THEATRE PRODUCTION AND THIS MAN HAS BEEN PERFECTING HIS 'ACTING' ON THE ALTAR STAGE FOR NEIGH ON 38+ YEARS.

BOY IS HE A 'SLOW LEARNER'.

HE HAS NOT EVEN ABSORBED THE FEELINGS AROUND FOR HIM - THAT HE IS 'NOT WANTED IN BRAY' - THAT HE SHOULD NOT HAVE COME BACK LAST DECEMBER WHEN HE HAD THE GOOD GRACE TO GO AWAY AND LEAVE US BE FOR 5 MONTHS.
