It is not for us priests of the parish to pronounce on the charges against Fr. Joe, only to say that we grieve for him and for all the people wounded by this notoriety. Our ongoing mission is to keep our people in possession of the spiritual blessings received at Blessed Sacrament, to keep them in touch with the living Jesus in the Eucharist and His sacramental ministries, and to foster the reviving spirit of the parish community. We will continue to pray for Fr. Joe, that he receive justice before the tribunal on earth, salvation at the throne of grace, and compassion in the hearts of all people. If it would help any of the faithful, we would gladly meet and pray with you individually.
With every blessing,
Fr. Francis Donnelly CC
