What is happening? Fr. Kevin McAuliffe is taking a leave of absence due to allegations of financial mis-management. This was announced in a very carefully-worded letter that was read at the 4PM Mass today.
He is also taking a leave as the Vicar-General of the Archdiocese.

Does anyone know the specifics of this situation?

Church Administration is very political and has been strongly influenced by Fr. Francis Vivona, a "resident" priest who is a very close personal friend of the Pastor, Fr. Kevin. This explains the constant reminder to spend money in their gift shop, which offers in all honesty, junk. Cheap stuff, overly priced.The funds accrued there go to Vivona and his church, O.L. of Wisdom, which is Byzantine, not Roman Rite. SEAS job openings go to political appointments. At one time, 8 staff were not even members of this parish, but belonged to O.L. Wisdom/Byzantine Rite. Pastor/McAuliffe allows Vivona to set up shop and tap into the cash flow of this parish, which caters more favorably to the wealthy white populous. Overall, this parish is controlling and stunted; no programs for Catholic gay/lesbian support, with a Youth Minister who is unqualified, no accredited background, another political appointment due to the ties of a wealthy benefactor. A power behind the throne. Many good staff have either been dismissed for defending just and good concerns, or have resigned. The Pastor is oddly a man of joyless persona with an underlying social deficit. The sermons and theological structure is parroted rhetoric, boring, uninspiring and fossilized. The building itself is deplorable in taste. The exterior icon of the patron is horribly done. There are far better priests and spiritual stimulation elsewhere.

The school here loses very good teachers consistently. Fee's for what is offered here, are set too high. Many CCSD schools offer the same or higher standard of education. The myth that private schools are "better" is found here. It is very much, overall, an "external" place, or as one wise person here states, "all that glitters is not gold." Truer words were never spoken. Finally, the church Deacons here are of the intellectual level of the Marx Brothers or Three Stooges. With exception to Deacon Joe, who at least speaks from the heart. How Frank Pemper became a Deacon is beyond the comprehension of most. Pemper is about as bright as a broom closet. I knew a custodian there once, years ago, a former monk, who was far more capable and spiritual than most of these priests and deacons. Go to St. Thomas/Traditional Old Catholic on Smoke Ranch. It's the closest experience to the Early Church.

Monsignor Kevin and Father Jim are very orthodox priests, and know the faith and show it. There are over 50 ministries at this Church of over 11,300 families registered.
It is a blessing to have Perpetucal Adoration too here, and the Bible Studies and Apologetics Group teach all Catholics how to understand the BIble and how to defend the Church. This is a fantastic parish.

St Elizabeths, on the surface is a well run parish. THE PROBLEMS OF THIS CITY, HOWEVER, INFLUENCE THIS PARISH PERSONA. THERE IS NO COMMUNITY SPIRIT HERE EITHER.

THE PARISHIONERS ARE LECTURED EVERY MASS ABOUT LEAVING EARLY. THE PRACTICE IS FUTILE AND ANNOYING. THE PEOPLE THAT LEAVE EARLY WILL ALWAYS LEAVE EARLY AND THE SAME FOR THOSE WHO STAY. ENOUGH SAID. MOVE ON TO SUBJECTS THAT HAVE MEANING.

ADDITIONALLY IT IS BROUGHT UP OFTEN, FROM THE ALTER SPACE TO BUY ITEMS IN THE GIFT SHOP LOCATED AT THE ENTRANCE OF THE CHURCH. ENOUGH! DID JESUS NOT CHASE THE MONEY CHANGERS FROM THE TEMPLE? HAS THE CLERGY DECIDED TO PICK AND CHOOSE WHAT TO BELIEVE JUST LIKE THE CATHOLICS THAT THEY CRITISIZE?

SO THE QUESTION THAT I AM MOST CURIOUS ABOUT IS WHERE DO THOS PROFITS GO ANYWAY?????

THIS CHURCH DOES QUITE WELL WITHOUT THIS STOREFRONT! WHO AND WHAT GETS THE MONEY? THERE IS NO ACCOUNTING FOR IT IN THE BULLETIN.

WE CAN ORDER BETTER QUALITY FROM THE INTERNET ANYWAY. MMMMMMMMMMMMM

If you are new to Las Vegas please stay away from this school. Mr. Curtin tries to do a good job running this school. However, he will not be here next school year. It seems his hands are tied up by the Pastor, Director of Religious Education, and Vice-Principal. My child has gone through so many teachers it's absurd. Yes, the turnover of staff tells me something is wrong with this place. The Archdiocese of Las Vegas has their head stuck in the sand. Send your kids to another private school or even CCSD.

Vicki lives on 35th and Lapham in Milwaukee WI I hope this helps Mike B. as she has been doing this sort of thing for quite awhile now.I do think her father should make restitution to every one Vicki has burned in the past,before he preaches to anyone.

If you are a new parent to Las Vegas please DO NOT send your child to this school. This is an abnomoly of a Catholic school and one of the worst of the worst. This is an ABSURD Catholic parish and school. This place has the nerve to call itself a Christian school. The Pastor seems to have a problem with the word "Christian" and not "Catholic." The man is an idiot. The Pastor was angry because he could not buy out the propertry from the Lutheran school across the street. Extremely poor leadership from the Pastor to the CLUELESS and MINDLESS Vice-Principal. How did this woman get into this position? She absolutely has the "deer in the headlights" demeanor to her and is CLUELESS. Why are homeroom teachers shifted around to other grades in the middle of the school year? Idiotic decision making. The "Core Knowledge" curriculum is lacking and not with the 21st century. They let competent teachers walk out the door.

The Pastor is quite strange. If he ran a for-profit business he would be out the door in a heart-beat. Do they really need a gift shop in the church? The Pastor blames a lot on the former Principal, yet HE NO backbone. Some parents seem to think that if they pay tuition THEY are entitled to run things. The turnover of professional staff here is MIND NUMBING. WHY? Please do your RESEARCH and ask why there is a CONSISTENT 50% TURNOVER OF STAFF! It's not the staff, it's the "so-called" leadership. The place is incompetent. Why would any educated and state licensed professional stay here? Please find another private or public school for your child. I doubt the new principal will change things here. The Vicar of Education is totally clueless. That is why he probably went to run the new Bishop Gorman High School. If you are a parent you need to ask why this man was shot by a student at Sacred Heart Middle School in Redlands, California in the late 90's. Why? This is public knowledge and does not have to be hidden (as many "things" are by the Catholic church). The student was killed. I've known Catholic school teachers who worked for over 40 years in Catholic schools and have not heard of such nonsense. His secretary has a few issues.

Why was bullet proof glass installed in the school office? Why??? The Director of Religious Education is a SOUR old man who does not relate AT ALL to kids (and thinks he is the holiest Catholic of all). This man has no background in education and has the nerve to have his big mouth in running the school and hiring teachers. He tells kids to shut up. The man BANNED Halloween parties. Get the point why SEAS is an absurd place? The Director of Religious Education is an IDIOT and MORON who needs to keep his nose out of school affairs. He is no holier than anyone else. He once had kids march to church THREE times a week for mass. Three times a week? Please. Much too old time Catholic. Stop with the holier than thou stuff. The Bishop thinks constantly turning over staff will change things here, memories fade, and everything is forgotton. It really won't happen. Good luck Las Vegas.

Do MUCH research about OLLV on Alta (another abnomoly of a Catholic parish and school) in Sin City. Fired former Pastor and well-liked Principal. Interim Pastor attacks church singer and goes on the run, but church singer is all innocent??? Inept Principal comes from St. Anne in the middle of the school year. Why would anyone take the position of moving a Principal from one Catholic school to another in the MIDDLE of the school year? This alone makes an intelligent person to ask why??? DROVES of teachers leave. Vice-Pricipal at OLLV has very poor leadership qualities. Why did the previous Spanish teacher leave and never return? Do the research and FIND OUT THE FACTS before sending your child to ANY Catholic school in Las Vegas (or better yet do not send your child to any Catholic school out here).

There are many wonderful Catholic school systems, but not here in Sin City. It's called Sin City for a reason. Do the research and ask MANY, MANY, MANY questions. Good riddance... I know from firsthand experience what SEAS and OLLV are all about. The Archdiocese of Las Vegas has it's moral compass stuck in the sand with its sanctimonious mindset. The Archdiocese of Las Vegas likes to brag "other" Catholic schools in the country are closing and they growing and expanding. Don't get too cocky on that. Las Vegas is what it is. NOTHING. Look at the current state of things. PARENTS ASK QUESTIONS. Truth be told. Good luck... do not send your child to an Archdiocese of Las Vegas school.

Describe your experience. A nightmare

Did they meet your expectations? NO

Do they specialize in anything? Yes, aggravation

Are they a good deal? Please

Would you recommend them? NO WAY, not to any parent.

My wife and I recently moved to the northwest and have been attending St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church. This parish is a very sound and orthodox Catholic Church and it is a blessing for the city of Las Vegas. We are blessed to be part of this parish where a solid Catholic education is being taught.

Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton is a very beautiful and very large Catholic Church. They also have a private catholic school there. There is usually a pretty long waiting list to get your kids in if you are a new member to the church.

A wonderfuly setting for all they families to come. They are always welcoming new comers in from all walks of like. The only down side is they are not open at all to what is going on.
