Welcome to the Catholic Churches of Franklin and Hardin Counties!

A comment from Fr. Kevin, in light of the recent Pennsylvania reports:

About a month ago, I gave a homily that wrestled with the question: “What do we do when we have a bad shepherd?”
While I wrote this homily before the reports from Pennsylvania were public, and so I did not have them in mind when I wrote it, I think there are some themes in here that may be very relevant.  So I offer it again, to be listened to.

 

On behalf of the Catholic clergy, I am sorry.  I hope that our Bishops may work for total transparency; for only the truth will set us free; I hope that justice be done; I hope that there is healing and reparation for all those who have been hurt and abused.

We hope. We pray.

Christ be our Light,

-Fr. Kevin

Fr. Kevin Earleywine, Pastor
