This post is VOCAL's take on the Year of Faith in the Archdiocese of Portland under our new Archbishop. For decades the "Years of Alinsky" have driven this Archdiocese. Priests that have lost their way had been leading us and some still do.
Laity has the task of asking questions of those that are paid by our collection plate monies regarding the errors that they encounter. No longer can we just "wait and see". As in the secular world around us, we can see how that attitude has served the people. Souls are most important.
For the time is, that judgment should begin at the house of God. And if first at us, what shall be the end of them that believe not the gospel of God? I Peter 4:17 Douay-Rheims Bible

The ministry of the Tribunal
is varied. We work with those preparing to marry, as well as those seeking
healing and release from a marriage that did not prove to be lasting, in
which a partnership did not take place as the Church understands it. We
provide research on a number of issues within Church law, and we provide
education and support to priests, parish ministers, and other members of
our wider Church community.
