Pastoral Letter 2018

Only a Priest

A Pastoral Letter to God's People of the Diocese of People

Bishop Michael McKenna released his annual Pastoral Letter on the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

"There are some things that a priest can do and some things he can’t do. There are things that only he can do. So he must do them, or else they will not be done. The same may be said for every member of the Church. There are some things that only you can do, so you must do them, or else they will not be done."

In this letter, Bishop Michael invites you to reflect more deeply on the mystery of the Church to which we belong. Through that reflection, we may come to understand more clearly the identity and mission of the priest, which makes sense only in the context of that mystery.
