A 7:30 AM Mass will be offered on Sundays, moving the current 8:30 AM Mass to 9:00 AM at Sacred Heart Church.

Statements by Bishop Coyne

August 22, 2018

Memorial of the Queenship of Mary
My friends,
I want to begin by thanking you for your continued faith despite the recent scandals rocking the Church in the United States. I am particularly saddened for the victims of clergy abuse and their families. Please pray for them.
None of these new disclosures is connected to our Diocese, but they affect us collectively as Catholics. Like you, I have found myself frustrated, angry, and outraged as I have read and learned more and more about the Archbishop McCarrick scandal and the Pennsylvania report. I am embarrassed and ashamed as a Catholic and, most especially, as a priest and a bishop.
I long for the day when we will have turned the corner on the sinful behavior of our clergy and shepherds. I am comforted that Jesus Christ does not leave his Church orphans. We are regularly reminded that God will never forsake the men and women of good hearts and strong faith who remain true to him. He will be with us until the end of time.
As I hope you know, our Diocese is committed to the safety of our children. I pledge to continue to be active and vigilant in rooting out sin and evil in this institution we love so much.
Please keep our priests who have been true and honorable shepherds in your hearts and your prayers. They are often judged and vilified based on the evil done by others. They need your love and affection.
May I conclude by asking for the continuing intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church to help us all to persevere in hope and in spreading the good news of salvation in her Son Jesus Christ.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
The Most Reverend Christopher J. Coyne
Bishop of Burlington
