On two separate occasions in the past few days, Bishop Peña has indicated that he will institute a healing process for Holy Spirit Parish, beginning with the Lenten season.
This is the best news Holy Spirit has heard since the events of June, 2003, and it promises the beginning of the meeting of the most important and persistent request that has been put to the Bishop by so many people over these many months. That is, to provide this parish an opportunity to find reconciliation and healing and to set in motion a process to restore the “dynamic, progressive Vatican II parish” that the Bishop praised so highly in February, 2003.
I suggest that each of us e-mail Bishop Peña, thanking him for recognizing the depth of the hurt in the Parish and for instituting this long sought healing process, and offering him the promise of our prayers for its success.
