So, the rectory is turned into a venue for frat parties. Well, this is the Diocese of Albany. Might not be as big a change as it appears on the surface.

Just another and very familiar sad page in a very long chronicle of decline, brought about by an utter failure to pass on the Faith. Well, at least they didn't sell the parish to the Ananda Church of Self-Realization, which happened here in the diocese of San Jose a decade or so ago.
