Don’t run … fight

(Message from Fr. Patrick to parishioners, 9/5/2018)

Dear Parishioner,

I imagine that many of you are still grappling with the difficulties raised by the current scandals in the Church. Please know of my continued prayer for you. Please also join me and others in praying for victims, the Church, and for reform. See last week’s bulletin (Sept. 2) for ways you can join us. [Click here for article.]

From time to time I hope to send you emails that will assist you in your own struggle with these challenges. Today, I would like to share a very powerful video from Bishop Robert Barron. Some of you face ridicule from co-workers, family members, or friends in this time. Others of you are perhaps on the edge of leaving the Church. Bishop Barron reminds us that more than ever, this is not a time to run, but to fight: Bishop Barron video
