Although we are being asked to distance ourselves physically from each other, we remain joined, deeply in faith, to our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Bishop John O. Barres
Bishop Barres visited Our Lady of Loretto parish and announced the appointment to parishioners at the 9 a.m. Mass on Sunday, December 15. Click for a slideshow of photos from Mass.
"We all need to engage and work with our leaders to take immediate action that is both compassionate and prudential."
The work of the Church – of administering the Sacraments, of teaching, healing, advocating, serving, and ministering to the poor and vulnerable – can and must continue, despite the sins of the past.
Bishop Barres was the main celebrant and keynote speaker at the annual Mass and Communion breakfast.
