Rev. Peter R. Alindogan said it was a smart move for the ailing pope.
Pope Benedict XVI announced Monday morning he would resign at the end of this month citing health reasons, reports say, making him the first pontiff to do so in almost 600 years. A local pastor is calling his move “courageous and smart.” “It takes a lot of courage to do that,” said Rev. Peter James R. Alindogan, pastor of St. Charles Borromeo in Cinnaminson. “It’s a good model for priests and bishops alike who are trying to hold onto their positions—the pope is saying, ‘I know when it’s my time to go.’” Benedict, 85, was elected in April 2005 upon John Paul II’s death earlier that same month. John Paul II publicly dealt with pneumonia and breathing problems in the months before his death. “If John Paul II taught us how to die with all …

Nearly 150 runners and walkers came out on Labor Day morning to participate in the 3rd annual St. Charles Run Back to School.

John Geary, head of carnival security for more than a decade, said if anything, teenagers with alcohol are the biggest issue.
The head of security at the St. Charles Borromeo carnival said even though there are multiple arrests that occur each year, the carnival is not “going downhill.” Parishioner and Palmyra resident John Geary, who has been in charge of all carnival security measures since 2000, said there aren’t many issues his group has had to deal with from year to year. “We don’t have a lot of problems on these carnival grounds,” Geary said. “[When we do], the biggest problem is young teenagers with alcohol. Our problems do not come from our beer bar.” Started several years ago, the beer tent, open to 21-year-olds and over—with strict security in place—was so successful, the carnival has it each year. “People go to the bar to meet their friends, have a …
