The Movement to Restore Trust (MRT) will hold a “Path Forward” symposium on Dec. 7, very close to our 1-year anniversary.
The symposium will run from 9 to 11 a.m., in the Canisius College Montante Cultural Center, located at Main and Eastwood streets.
The symposium will provide an opportunity for us to reconvene and have a conversation on two key topics:
- What desired qualities the laity would like to see in the next bishop of the Diocese of Buffalo; and
- What is happening at a grass roots level within the parishes.
The agenda will also include an overview of what will likely happen should the Diocese of Buffalo file for bankruptcy.
No registration is required. Please feel free to share with others who may be interested and encourage them to come.
Multiple local, national and international news outlets report that Bishop Richard Malone requested early retirement and that Pope Francis has accepted that resignation…
by John J. Hurley – Last December, the Movement to Restore Trust (MRT) empaneled six working groups involving about 150 Catholics who developed a series of reports and recommendations for reform in the Diocese of Buffalo.
MRT’s John Hurley participated in an extended interview with Tim Wenger of 930in716 on WBEN Radio on Thursday, November 14, 2018.
Dear Members of the Movement to Restore Trust, Like most of you, the MRT Organizing Committee has been waiting and watching the situation in the Diocese since early September when we determined that the MRT could not make progress on its reform agenda while Bishop Malone remained in office.
Several Buffalo news outlets are reporting that Most Rev. Nicholas DiMarzio of Brooklyn has completed his investigation.
