Messages from Archbishop Aymond

Archbishop Gregory Aymond would like to call your attention to two important items:

1. In the Clarion Herald this weekend, he has written an article discussing the recent media coverage of the Holy Father’s handling of several cases involving the sexual abuse of minors which took place a number of years ago. For six years Archbishop Aymond served as Chair of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Committee for the Protection of Children and Young People. He is in a unique position to answer questions about the situation. Please read his article in the Clarion. Copies are in the back of church.

2. Next weekend, the Archdiocese is taking up a collection for the Catholic Home Missions Appeal. Money will be used to support religious education, youth ministry, evangelization, seminary education and ministry training in mission dioceses in Alaska, Appalachia, the Southwest, as well is Puerto Rico and U.S. Territories. Please be generous!
