ST. LOUIS (2008-08-11) The long-running dispute over St. Stanislaus Kostka has reached a boiling point. On Sunday, members of the Polish Catholic church in north St. Louis elected a new board. And the archdiocese has warned the new members they face excommunication like the others.

But this is not the same old story. Some members now want to reconcile with the archdiocese. And they say unless a judge steps in, those now in charge of the parish will take it in a direction its immigrant founders could never have imagined.
