We have gotten feedback from a number of priests that our message has come through loud and clear! At the same time, the volume of emails from our campaign is starting to clog their email in-boxes and make life difficult. For some, the emails have already gotten to the point of being annoying and feeling like spam.
Our intention was to ensure that Catholic faithful could communicate with the Cardinal, clergy and Holy See on this matter of importance to the future of the archdiocese. All too often, we are told that when faithful Catholics do not speak up, it gives the impression they are OK with the status quo or current direction. However, we did not intend to annoy our outstanding priests who are dedicated to serving the Lord and the Church, and we apologize if that has resulted.
Some number of readers and faithful Catholics have had a chance to voice their views on this important matter to our pastors, and we believe the message about needing a change has been communicated, at least for now. Since the goal of communicating the message has been accomplished, in view of the aforementioned feedback, we are going to conclude the campaign at this time. The red buttons on the previous posts will be deactivated.
Thanks to all who took the time to participate. We hope and pray that the input will be considered.
