Diocese refuses to allow Pax Christi, former bishop hold parish event

October 07, 2009

The Diocese of Richmond, which has vetted speakers for orthodoxy since Bishop Francis DiLorenzo was appointed bishop in 2004, has declined to allow Pax Christi to hold an event at a parish because it is not a diocesan organization. Retired Bishop Walter Sullivan had been scheduled to speak at the event.

“I think it's just a big disappointment that we couldn't be at one of our parishes,” he said after the event was held at another location. Bishop Sullivan, now 81, led the diocese from 1974 to 2003.
