Con­tra­dic­tory church pol­icy

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

Re your ar­ti­cle in The Guardian (Con­tra­dic­tory to church pol­icy), I called the bishop’s res­i­dence Mon­day morn­ing af­ter I saw the ad for the meet­ing at Ver­non River Catholic church hall for the PCs nom­i­na­tion meet­ing and left a mes­sage on an­swer ma­chine that the bishop had said ' no po­lit­i­cal meet­ings in church halls" and had de­nied David Dun­phy, Stratford Lib­eral, to have his nom­i­nat­ing meet­ing in Our Lady of the As­sump­tion Church hall this spring be­fore last P.E.I. elec­tion.

I left my name and phone num­ber and asked them to call me but I never re­ceived a call, so I re­ally doubt that the bishop was out of town and I re­ally think he should have some­one in charge that can keep his poli­cies in place in Char­lot­te­town and all the lo­cal Catholic church halls that know and fol­low his poli­cies. This smacks of fa­voritism on some­one’s part in our dio­cese. I usu­ally don't get in­volved in those things, but this re­ally both­ers me.

I would cer­tainly like you to do a fol­low up on this busi­ness. Eleanor Suther­land, Char­lot­te­town
