Explains church process in abuse cases
MADISON -- With the release of the final decision by the Vatican's Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith in the penal judicial trial of Fr. Kenneth E. Klubertanz, questions have arisen about the duration of the process involved, the nature of the decision reached, and the relation between ecclesiastical and civil law.
Jay Conzemius, director of the Tribunal for the Diocese of Madison, answered some of these questions in an interview. Conzemius, a canon lawyer, holds the positions of Promoter of Justice and Defender of the Bond with the Diocese of Madison's Tribunal.
As Promoter of Justice, amongst other things he represents the Church in cases of clergy sexual abuse of minors, the latter being viewed as a crime against the Church. As Defender of the Bond, he represents the Church in marriage invalidity cases. Full story ...
Building for the next 100 years
WAUNAKEE -- As parish communities get larger and time passes, parishes are faced with the challenge of providing for the needs of their people in increasingly confined and aging buildings.
For St. John the Baptist Parish, Waunakee, meeting this challenge meant expanding their current church and school into a campus that will include the existing church, a new worship and gathering space, an office building, and the school.
The "Building a Community of Faith" process, which was begun nearly a decade ago with a long-range plan committee, continued June 2 with an official groundbreaking of the new church. The ground had already been broken for construction, but the symbolic occasion included Mass, celebrated by Bishop Robert C. Morlino with the parish priests concelebrating, and then a prayer service at the new site. Full story ...
