VIDEO: Canon Lawyer Event Almost Full

The Canon Lawyer Event on October 25th is almost full. We are so thankful for the many, many people involved in bringing Canon Lawyer Philip Gray with the St. Joseph Foundation to St. Louis. We already have 60+ parishes represented, and almost 250 people. We may add events while Mr. Gray is in town, or later in the year. After your “Listening” Session at your parish, you may want to meet Mr. Gray. Just use the link below to get on the Wait List.

Register to meet the Canon Lawyer on October 25th here (and/or get on Wait List for future meeting): https://CanonLawyerComingToSTL.eventbrite.com

    Make sure you sign up for your parish “listening session” too. The Archdiocesan website is clunky and slow and you must have an email to register to attend. You must register to attend these sessions. The Archdiocese is making it as difficult as possible to keep attendance low- having the sessions at night when the elderly won’t drive. The decisions have been made, make absolutely no mistake about that- make sure you read all of the “handbooks” for your area too.

    Another trick is sending you to another location within the “listening area” instead of your home parish- if that happens, wait a day or so and sign up again. Seating is being limited to 250 per session. Teams from other parishes will be running the sessions and no the Archbishop nor his lackey Fr Martin will be attending- but you get to watch a video of them!

      You are absolutely correct! Thank you for your comments. As anyone knows who is already registered, it is actually even worse because it is Catholic Leadership Institute (not the Archdiocese) who is controlling the registration process. And CLI won’t be at the sessions either. Just a poor volunteer facilitator who will say “I don’t know” “I will have to ask the leadership team” to any real questions posed. Or they may suggest the “open ended survey question” that lets you say anything by email!!! To limit seating to 250 at parishes that have 1000’s of families is not “listening”!

VIDEO: Pray, Hope & Don’t Worry

We cannot lose hope. God is in charge. We need to continue to pray for all people of the Archdiocese of St. Louis. The Battle of Lepanto (October 7, 1571) is a great example of prayer changing the outcome of a dire situation for Christendom. Since October 7th is the day before the “Listening” Sessions (or as the laity calls it “Telling Sessions”), let’s ramp up our prayers and ask God for His protection and help! Also, it is perfectly appropriate to ask at the “Telling Sessions” questions like how many souls are okay to leave behind? Will you give us an accounting to the penny of every church you close in this process? Anyone who is willing to be a facilitator for these sessions, must believe that All Things New is a good program, and should be willing to answer hard questions about it.More

VIDEO: Don’t Abandon Ship

“In her voyage across the ocean of this world, the Church is like a great ship being pounded by the waves of life’s different stresses. Our duty is not to abandon ship but to keep her on course.” – St. BonifaceMore

VIDEO: St. Joseph Foundation Canon Lawyer for Priests & Laity

The October 25th event with Canon Lawyer Philip Gray from St. Joseph Foundation is almost full. See link below to register. Philip Gray does everything he can to work cooperatively with the leadership of the Archdiocese. In other dioceses across the US, he has been able to get 90 parishes to come together under him to approach the Archbishop and come to better solutions. He works pro bono but accepts donations to the St. Joseph Foundation. NOTE: Please ask your priest to watch the video below where Philip Gray was a guest with Fr. Mitch Pacwa on EWTN. The priests can reach out confidentially to the St. Joseph Foundation to learn their Canon Law rights, too.More
