The "Credo Priests" Petition


Archbishop Vigano: Call your office! Friday, my colleague Soli Salgado and I published a news item about a petition signed by more than 850 priests urging the Synod on the Family to “stand firm on the Church’s traditional understanding of marriage, human sexuality and pastoral practices.” The petition, organized by a group called “Credo Priests” mimics one a few weeks ago engineered by conservative clerics in the United Kingdom.

If you are reading this, hopefully you have already made a donation. If you have not yet made a donation, I encourage you to do so, and to make a donation at the appropriate level. Here is the link.
