With Cousins Center on market, groups consider options

Cheri Perkins Mantz reports in our Catholic Herald on the many Church and other organizations that will have to move from the Archbishop Cousins Center due to its sale to help fund the California clergy sexual abuse settlements.
When asked if the Archdiocese of Milwaukee is helping clubs, teams and groups who use the Cousins Center find a new home, Kreitzer [Bill Kreitzer, director of building services] said, "not to my knowledge."

But they're not playing favorites.
Archbishop Timothy M. Dolan addressed a group of archdiocesan employees housed at the Cousins Center on Sept. 8. He told them he understands their feelings and the difficulty that lay ahead, not only for employees, but also for the retired priests living at the Cousins Center. Kreitzer estimated 15 retired priests reside there. Each is responsible for finding his own housing by October 2007.

None of them qualified for the $10,000 assistance grant.
