Parish­ioners protest pri­est’s sus­pen­sion

Red Eye Chicago - - Chicago -

About 100 parish­ioners of St. Sabina Catholic Church marched in front of Car­di­nal Fran­cis Ge­orge’s red brick man­sion Thurs­day to protest the sus­pen­sion of their pas­tor, the Rev. Michael Pfleger.

The parish­ioners and res­i­dents of Auburn Gre­sham gath­ered at St. Sabina be­fore board­ing two school buses that took them to the car­di­nal’s Gold Coast man­sion, where they marched and de­manded that the sus­pen­sion be lifted.

Priests gen­er­ally re­main at a parish for 12 years, but oc­ca­sional ex­cep­tions are made in African-Amer­i­can parishes, where some par­ents went to the church be­cause their chil­dren went to the parochial schools.
