Saint Raymond Events!


Event Details

It is a difficult time to be a Catholic. As we struggle yet again with the crisis of clerical abuse and cover-up, we ask: What next? How does one respond? What is the future of our Catholic Church?  Please join us on Sunday, October 14 at 6:00 pm St Raymond Community Room a listening session where participants are invited to share a two-minute response to any of the following questions:

 1) What is heaviest on your heart about the recent revelations?

2) What do you want each other/clergy/bishops to know from you?

3) How can you exercise your rights and power as a lay person?

4) What actions should the hierarchy take?

 Your comments, thoughts and guidance will be collected to present to those who are in a position to help change our course for the future.

Consider googling these documents in preparation:

1) Letter from Cardinal Blase J. Cupich to the People of the Archdiocese of Chicago in Response

2) to the Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report

2) An Open Letter to the USCCB by Fr. Larry Dowling
