  • Prayer for Our Church

    Heavenly Father,
    in every age you have been our refuge.
    Yet again and still, we stand before you
    asking for your protection on your holy Church
    For the victims of abuse and their families, pour out your healing and peace.
    For the bishops of this country, continue to inspire their decisions,
    and guide them with your Spirit.
    For the thousands of good and faithful priests,
    who have followed your call to serve you
    and your people in holiness, sustain them by your grace.
    For the faithful who are angry, confused and searching for answers,
    embrace them with your love, restore their trust,
    console them with your clear Gospel message, and renew them with your sacraments.
    We place our Church in your hands, for without you we can do nothing.
    May Jesus, our High Priest and true compass
    continue to lead her in every thought and action
    to be an instrument of justice,
    a source of consolation, a sacrament of unity
    and a manifestation of your faithful covenant.
    Grant this through that same Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.

  • Rev. Gerard I. Willger status:

    For the good of our Diocese and care of her people, I have determined that I must suspend Fr. Gerard Willger from all priestly ministry.  Although he is still a priest, all priestly faculties are suspended at this time.
    The suspension is due to conduct inappropriate to his priestly calling:  interpersonal relationship boundary issues NOT related to minors. While he was away, Fr. Willger was evaluated and received treatment for his personal boundary issues. The evaluation shows him to be at high risk of having the same issues in the future.

    Please keep Fr. Willger and his family in your prayers during this difficult time.
