Habemus Episcopum!

We Have a Bishop!

Pastor David Bonnar Appointed Bishop Of Youngstown Diocese By Pope Francis

Father David Bonnar, pastor of Saint Aidan Parish in Wexford has been appointed to become the Bishop of the Diocese of Youngstown. Father Bonnar was appointed by Pope Francis with an announcement made Tuesday morning. “I am overwhelmed by the trust and confidence the Holy Father has placed in me in appointing me the Bishop of Youngstown. It is humbling following a long line of Pittsburgh priests that include Cardinal Maida, Cardinal Wuerl, Cardinal DiNardo, Archbishop Hebda, Bishop Bosco, Bishop Tobin, Bishop Zubik, Bishop Burns, and Bishop Bradley, who have been called to shepherd and serve the Church beyond our diocese,” said Father Bonnar in a press release.

Please keep Father Bonnar in your Prayers.

A message from Fr Daniel about the vaccine

I have received a number of calls and letters concerning the development of the new COVID-19 vaccines and their connection to using cell lines of aborted fetal tissue.  To briefly summarize, the bishop's conference has concluded that,

"Neither the Pfizer nor the Moderna vaccine involved the use of cell lines that originated in fetal tissue taken from the body of an aborted baby at any level of design, development, or production. They are not completely free from any connection to abortion, however, as both Pfizer and Moderna made use of a tainted cell line for one of the confirmatory labtests of their products.There is thus a connection, but it is relatively remote." 

Some are asserting that if a vaccine is connected in any way with tainted cell lines then it is immoral to be vaccinated with them. This is an inaccurate portrayal of Catholic moral teaching.

Thus,“In view of the gravity of the current pandemic and the lack of availability of alternative vaccines, the reasons to accept the new COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna are sufficiently serious to justify their use, despite their remote connection to morally compromised cell lines."  However, the bishops have said that this is not the case for the AstraZeneca vaccine, which is much more morally compromised, and should be avoided.

I am providing links to the full statements of the US Bishop's and teachings on this matter, which I hope will help to remove any misgivings you might have about these vaccines.

Mass Reopening Guidelines

Mass Obligation and Protocol Updates:

Beginning in June, the obligation to attend Sunday Mass and Holy Days of Obligation is being reinstated. 

Please inform those you may know who have not been at Mass for a while. Remember that one is excused from the obligation for reasons of sickness and genuine life-threatening fear of contracting the virus. At Mass itself, masks will no longer be required, and there will no longer be a requirement for social 

distancing in the pews. Please be respectful toward those who still wish to wear a mask and desire some distance between them and others.  Those who receive the Eucharist on the tongue will continue to receive from Fr. Daniel himself.
