We, as parishioners of St. Isabel’s for 40 years, want to make it clear you are not speaking for us.
Fr. Gates is a nice young man but we feel he is not able to unite the parish, especially if he divides the parishioners into “ the good and not so good”, as you state in your letter. In order to unite the parish should the “ not so good” leave the parish? The church?
We will not put the matter of Fr. Christopher behind us but will continue to pray for justice for him.
