Austrian dissident priest barred from speaking in Detroit parish

CWN - July 26, 2013

Detroit's Archbishop Allen Vigneron has vetoed an appearance by the Austrian dissident priest, Father Helmut Schüller, at a local parish.

Father Schüller, the leader of the Austrian "Call to Disobedience," is on a speaking tour in the US this month. His appearance in Detroit will now take place at a local high school.

Cardinal Sean O'Malley of Boston and Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia had already barred appearances by the Austrian cleric in the parishes of their archdioceses. In Boston, Father Schüller spoke at a Unitarian church; in Philadelphia he was hosted by an independent Catholic college, Chestnut Hill College, despite the archbishop's disapproval.
