As we all know, Fr. Altman has been subject to diabolical persecution just for doing his job as a shepherd to his flock. Unfortunately, yet not totally unexpected, the time has come for Father to mount a legal defense because forces have been marshalled and are moving to cancel him from being pastor at St. James. We, his flock, must rise to the occasion to support him as he has supported us all these months. Father Altman has shown courage and strength in his commitment to giving us the Truth. In a culture that celebrates deception and sin, Father Altman has been a shining light to tens of thousands of faithful Catholics worldwide. Sadly, as we are all aware, our holy priests are being attacked from within. It is our duty and honor as faithful sheep to help our shepherd to defend himself. If there were only one scripture verse that we could use to describe what Father means to us, it would be this:"No man has greater love than this, that he lay down his life for his friends" John 15:13.  All donations will go to pay for his legal defense and related fees. Should Father be disciplined to the point of being "fired," additional funds in excess of the amount needed for legal fees will be used for his personal needs like health insurance. If any monies are left over from these expenditures, Father will gratefully donate them to The St. James Handicap Ramp Fund if he successfully retains his position as Pastor, or will donate to those organizations that support life (such as LifeSiteNews) and defend the Catholic Church (such as Church Militant).  We will be posting updates on this site to keep you in the loop. All prayers are humbly accepted. Thank you and God bless for your generosity!

Thank you all for answering the call! We've reached our initial goal. Father was in awe and is extremely grateful. He said Canon lawyers cost $250/hr so this is really helpful! St. James had a Pentecost Candlelight Prayer Service outside the Rectory tonight & there were over 150 people there to ask The Holy Spirit for guidance on how to help our beloved Fr. Altman. During the service, it rained & as they sang The Battle Hymn of Republic, the most beautiful rainbow appeared in the sky... along with F. Altman on the roof!!! He blessed everyone with exorcised Holy Water.  He thanked everyone and is not giving up. He said he loves his St. James family & hopes to be together for a long time. Please keep praying that this occurs. ?? (There is a picture at the top of this page. Swipe left.)
