Italian bishop says no Muslim services in Catholic parish

~from CWN

Lay Catholics in the town of Ponzano Veneto, Italy, have complained that their pastor has allowed local Muslims to gather on parish property for prayer services on Friday, the Islamic Sabbath, Italian media sources report.

The complaints by parishioners, supported by local government officials, prompted Bishop Andrea Mazzocato of Treviso, ordered the pastor of Ponzano Veneto to instruct the pastor to discontinue any apparent sponsorship of Muslim services.
