Catholics stand up for fired, pregnant teacher

 | 

Montana Catholics delivered a petition to chancery in Helena, Mont., this afternoon hoping to persuade Bishop George Thomas to reinstate Shaele Evenson, the Catholic school teacher in Butte, Mont., who lost her job when the superintendent of schools learned she was unmarried and pregnant.

Unfortunately, Bishop TK couldn’t receive their petition because he was out of town. It may not matter anyway, according to the diocesan spokesman Dan Bartleson.

Writes Debien:

The appointment of 72-year-old Cardinal Pell to oversee and overhaul church finances may yet prove a master-stroke in Pope Francis's program of church reform.
