Pope Francis said that the Catholic Church must consider various ways to integrate the divorced and civilly remarried in the life of the Church — not merely allowing them to receive Communion, but letting them serve as eucharistic ministers and godparents — and to make it easier for Catholic families to accept their homosexual members.
On Dec. 9, Bishop Andrew Cozzens celebrated the one-year anniversary of his ordination as an auxiliary bishop for the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. It was a busy year of confirmations, engagement in Latino Ministry and taking an active role in helping victims of sexual abuse heal.
This week, the archdiocese announced a partnership with Twin Cities-based Canvas Health to provide victim assistance services. Now, when a person calls (651) 291-4497 any time day or night, he or she will reach a professional trained to respond to victims/survivors of sexual abuse.
