UPDATED!

Dear Parishioners,

The weekend of August 19th I spoke in my homily about the crisis that continues to loom in the Catholic Church. Also, Deacon Bill Demidovich gave a very good homily the weekend of September 8-9th. The Holy Father, the USCCB and Bishop Campbell have all issued statements that should be of interest to all members of the faithful.  You will find these documents and other resources of interest at the links below:

Here are some other links as well:

Bishop Frederick F. Campbell is interviewed by AM 820 host David Martin regarding the current revelations and accusations that assail the Church. The interview is available in the AM 820 Archives.

 

I encourage everyone to please take to heart he Holy Father’s Call to a  “penitential exercise of prayer and fasting,” in order to “awaken our conscience and arouse our solidarity and commitment to a culture of care that says ‘never again’ to every form of abuse.” This request of his, while not a mandate, is meant to serve as a unified call to holiness, which can be the only response in the face of such a horrific experience perpetrated by members of the clergy and others entrusted with the care of souls.

Please pray for the victims and their families. Let us stand together with Christ as a Church that he may conquer overwhelmingly all that invades the Church which brings harm to others. May our desire to grow in holiness be fulfilled for the Glory of God and for the good of all His people.

Please know of my prayers for you, as I am certain that you will pray for them.

 

God bless,

 

Fr. Anthony A. Dinovo, Jr.

Pastor
