From the Pastor
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
The Extraordinary Synod on the Family that met in Rome
this past October was just the beginning of a process of
discernment on issues facing the modern family.
The Holy Father had asked the Bishops to speak openly
about their concerns surrounding marriage and family
life. This process of discernment, which will include
discussion, listening, reflection, and prayer will lead up
to a General Assembly to be held in Philadelphia next
Fall. Bishop Bootkoski’s letter is enclosed in this week’s
bulletin for further reflection on the Synod.
Let us together pray to the Holy spirit for wisdom to
guide all members of the Church through this important
process. May the Spirit of God rekindle in us the fire
