EWTON — Vowing to change the church from the ground up, one parish at a time, 300 members of the lay Catholic group Voice of the Faithful met in Newton yesterday to draft a ”blueprint for change,” saying Boston’s new archbishop cannot solve the problems of the archdiocese alone.
Wow a whopping 300, next they can go to D.C. with the 0.0003 millionth Man March.
…Still, some members spoke of progress, and suggested policies to promote safe church environments. One plan, developed by Concord Area Voice of The Faithful members, recommends that parishes each form two new councils, one to oversee staffing decisions, and another to write policies on safety and act on abuse allegations.
Yes forming new parish councils and more bureaucratic control will really reduce the failure of a small amount of priests; just look what it had done for the Federal Government. The problem with VOTF is that they are not grounded in the Catholic belief of personal sanctity and prayer, they believe that the Holy Spirit sits in at board meetings.
