OCTOBER 19-20 IS DISCIPLES RESPONSE FUND SUNDAY
We will be presenting the Bishop's remarks and passing out envelopes for families who have not responded yet. Every parish in the Diocese has benefitted from the Disciple's Response Fund. Our parish goals were not increased this year, so please be as generous as you can.
CATHOLIC SCHOOLS OFFICE SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS
The Catholic Schools Office for the Diocesee has launched official Facebook and Instagram accounts. Their goal is to "spread the Good News" as well as increase awareness of the 17 Catholic schools around the diocese. Please follow them and encourage others to do so!
Question: Is a divorced person excommunicated from the Church?
Answer: Absolutely not. A divorced person who remains single remains in full communion with the Roman Catholic Church (Catechism of the Catholic Church, Second Edition, §1649)
Question: Is a divorced and remarried (civilly) Catholic person excommunicated from the Church?
Answer: If a divorced person remarries contrary to the teachings of the Church, he/she is still invited to participate in the public prayer of the Church, worship with the community at Mass and participate in other spiritual and social functions in the Church. Such a person, however, CANNOT receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist until his/her marital status is clarified in the Church. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, Second Edition, §1650, §1651)
The Office of the Diocesan Tribunal is a ministry designed to help individuals in the healing process by seeking clarification with regard to their marriage. If you have questions, please contact the Tribunal at (270) 683-1545 or Tribunal@pastoral.org
