On Holy Thursday (April 9, 2020) last week, Bishop Steven Raica spent 17 minutes talking to talk show host Michael Patrick Shiels on the morning radio show, Michigan’s Big Show. From reflections on Holy Thursday to his move to Birmingham, Alabama, Bishop Raica spent a good amount of time talking about various issues including the Coronavirus shutdown, grits, and his personal health.
This is in stark contrast to meeting with his flock. He has steadfastly are repeatedly refused to meet with concerned Catholics in the Diocese of Gaylord. As he prepares to move to head the Diocese of Birmingham, Alabama, we hope that the faithful in that diocese will have a better experience interacting with Bishop Raica. We also hope that the suspension of Father Matthew Cowan will be resolved by the time Bishop Raica leaves Michigan.
