Urgent Notice for St. Peter's Parishioners from Father Linsky
Pope Francis has called an extraordinary synod of bishops on the family for October 2014. To prepare for the meeting, the Vatican has created a questionnaire for the world’s bishops to use in determining clergy and laity response to the teachings of the Church on marriage and the family.
To assist the Bishop of Charleston prepare to participate in the extraordinary synod, the survey has been added to the home page of the diocesan website at www.sccatholic.org There are two forms, that which came from the Vatican and a shorter version. Respondents may choose one or the other, and answer any or all questions. The deadline to complete the survey is Dec. 16, 2013.
As your pastor, I strongly encourage you to share your opinions and observations with our Bishop. This is a remarkable opportunity to inform our Bishops andt he Holy Father of what I call the perspectives from the pews. Thank you for your assistance.
