More Dissent In A Parish Bulletin

January 14th, 2010, Promulgated by Dr. K

Fr. Edward Palumbos, pastor of Church of the Assumption in Fairport, apparently is displeased that the Church isn’t inclusive enough when it comes to the ordination of priests. So he takes the time to use his parish bulletin to take a shot at the Church’s disciplines and/or teachings:

“For this reason, and many others, we need to be much more serious about encouraging young men to consider the ordained ministry. At the same time, we should continue to advocate for a change in the Church’s policy regarding who can respond to a call to ordained ministry. A change in our Church’s policy will take time. For the immediate future, we need to encourage those who respond to the call, and give them our prayerful support.”

The good father declines to elaborate on what exactly he means when he says “who can respond to a call”… perhaps its best that he does not.

He also signed the What If We Just Said Wait petition, for what it’s worth.
