In today’s bulletin (October 3, 2021) of St. Philip Neri Church, Father Ken Stachnik wrote the following regarding his parish and homosexual marriage/gay unions:

Does that mean you will see me blessing Gay Unions here at St. Philip Neri? No, not at all. The Pope made it clear that priests are not permitted to perform same-gender blessings.

In the past, faithful of the Diocese of Gaylord have voiced concerns to Gaylord Diocesan Watch about Father Stachnik and his stand on a variety of moral issues.  We are happy to see Father Stachnik voicing his strong stand with regard to blessing same sex unions in his parish: No, not at all.

Gaylord Diocesan Watch will continue to point out the actions of priests and others in the Diocese, both good and bad, in order to educate and promote the common good for the Diocese of Gaylord.
