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.
