This article discusses a controversy regarding the Catholic Diocese of Maine’s decision to create a second church, Sacred Heart, in Waterville. The existing church, St. Francis de Sales was considered a French church, which Sacred Heart was staffed by Irish clergy. The author uses this event to discuss the poor relationship between Irish and French Roman Catholics.
