Sorry for the delay in getting this out to you before the weekend, but lots of personal things to deal.
Well, here is the weekly update.
The Page 3 story focuses on the Social Ministry Conference held on June 13th. No mention of PICO - the Saul Alinsky type organization and sister organization of ACORN. Makes you wonder why that was not mentioned. Could it be that the Archdiocese is a bit embarrassed?
There was a small box story on the DC Catholic Conference and the loss of voting rights when it can to DC marriage.
There is story about a couple married 70 years. Again, WOW. So much can be learned from couple like that.
There were another round of transfers.
However, most of the issue was dedicated to the seven men who were ordained this past Saturday. Their stories are varied. From the former World Bank staff member, to a CFO, to a former Episcopalian. Take a moment to read about them. It is fascinating. Who knows, one of them may be coming to your parish soon.
As always, if you don't get the Catholic Standard, pick one up in your parish. Remember, they are required to take a certain number of copies -- whether they like it or not.
