Our bishop recently announced that he is taking a general survey of all Catholics in the Diocese of Lafayette-in-Indiana concerning the state of our local Church. To quote from the website: “Bishop Doherty is eager to understand your thoughts and experiences with the Catholic Church, Schools and Healthcare Facilities in the Diocese.”
We highly encourage all our “parishioners” of the St. John Bosco Latin Mass Community to fill out the form as listed on the website. PLEASE MENTION in the additional information section at the end of the survey your appreciation of the availability of a regular Latin Mass in our diocese. Something along the lines of “we are thankful that the bishop has provided for a regular Tridentine Latin Mass in the Diocese of Lafayette, and we hope that the bishop may find it possible to establish a parish where the Latin Mass may be offered on a regular weekly basis, as well as on feast days.”
Be charitable, but be insistent. And please tell your friends to fill out the survey and mention likewise how much they appreciate having the opportunity to regularly attend a Latin mass. The more replies for the Latin mass, the better. The bishop wants to understand our thoughts. Let’s make them known.
