As some of you may know, at the end of this past year, the Diocese of Charlotte released a comprehensive accounting of clergy credibly accused of child sexual abuse in the Diocese since it was established in 1972.  This list is available at Accountability.charlottediocese.orgMore information can also be found in the January 3, 2020, edition of “Catholic News Herald” and online at  Together with the new Diocesan website, the Diocese has also launched an independent abuse reporting hotline.  Please note that this is a change in reporting procedure, i.e., reports of abuse should no longer be directed to the Chancery; all abuse reports should be directed to the independent abuse reporting hotline.  If anyone has concerns or information about possible sexual abuse or misconduct by any clergy, employee or volunteer of the Diocese of Charlotte, they can report concerns safely, securely, and anonymously 24/7 over the phone using the Diocese’s new hotline, 888 630-5929, or by visiting the following website:  Please remember that concerns and information about abuse should still be reported to the civil authorities, as well, including dialing 911 in emergency situations.

Bishop Jugis has announced the Diocese of Charlotte will celebrate 2020 as the “Year of St. Joseph,” commemorating the 150th anniversary of St. Joseph being solemnly declared Patron of the Catholic Church by Pope Pius IX.  We want to honor St. Joseph, the guardian and protector of the Church, and learn from his example of faith, perseverance, and holy fatherhood. The Year of St. Joseph began January 1, 2020, and will conclude December 31, 2020.  Many special events are being planned across the diocese.  Please visit the Year of St. Joseph website ( throughout 2020 for a list of activities, pilgrimages, devotions, prayers, and more.

If anyone is facing hospitalization or confinement at a rehabilitation facility or home, please contact the Parish Office to arrange for any Sacraments that might be needed.  Arrangements can also be made to have communion taken to the homebound.

PLEASE WISH “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” to Monica Lester, January 1; Dennis Silver, January 4; Marinette Wanezek, January 7; Paige Moore, January 11; Vera Warzecha, January 13; Lindsey Sullivan, January 17; Helene Rupprecht, January 23.
