Here's a rather curious description from a news report from UPI:
PITTSBURGH, Sept. 9 (UPI) -- A former Catholic priest's plans to convert a small chapel into a large center near the Pennsylvania field where United Flight 93 crashed worries critics.
Bishop Alphonse Mascherino, who now serves with a branch of the Catholic Church not recognized by the Vatican, wants to move the former Lutheran church he converted into a Flight 93 shrine closer to the planned national memorial. The center would include an auditorium, conference rooms, museum and gift shop, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported. [puzzled emphasis added]
So, the reporter first describes Mascherino as a former Catholic priest, but then says he serves in a "branch of the Catholic Church", which would not be former, but current. Huh? In fact, Mascherino apparently was a Catholic priest for over thirty years before leaving and joining the schismatic North American Old Roman Catholic Church, which is not in communion with the Catholic Church (the one founded by Christ, with the Pope and such) in which he now serves as a "bishop". As a September 2009 article in The Tribune-Democrat (Johnstown, PA) reported:
His acceptance as a bishop in the Old Roman Catholic Church “severs his ties with the Roman Catholic Church,” said a news release from Bishop Joseph Vellone of the Old Roman Catholic Church.
Goodness, I'm so glad that has been clarified. Now I need to get back to learning the chords for "With or Without You" while waiting for a call from Bono...
