Interesting article. Chicago has a significant Polish ancestry population, with a daily Polish language neswpaper. Given the Pastor was ordained in 2010, I would like to know where he served until he became pastor in Clear Lake Encouraging that the congregation sings A bit surprising that there seems to be only one weekday Mass. I appreciate there are two Spanish Masses
To dear Father Adam Kotas:
Father my wife and I love everything about you, wife is being asking me to go visit you so my question is how can I reach you? We are from Henderson, I play guitar & my wife sings at Holy Family Sunday mass at 6 AM, we also play at Saint Peater for the Spanish prayers group and at Sta. Bridget. We first met you in Pahrump 3 1/2 years ago where we played in spiritual retrieve. I hope we can get to see you soon.
Fr. Adam Kotas has left the Roman Catholic faith. He converted to a splinter “Catholic” church not in communion with Rome or the Holy Father. He is opening a church in Las Vegas and actively recruiting Catholics to his church. Its quite the scandal here in little Lake County.
