Brilliant sunshine and a deep, blue sky served as backdrop March 24 for 675 young pilgrims and others who joined arms with Bishop Malooly, spreading a message of God’s love on the streets of Wilmington.

The pilgrimage began in the morning at St. Elizabeth’s and ended in the evening at the same place as congregants filled the church to capacity for a Palm Sunday vigil Mass that completed the daylong activities. Pilgrimage 2018: Walking His Way was the ninth annual event.

Diocese of Wilmington statement regarding Padua Academy

March 21st, 2018 Posted in Our Diocese Tags:

By

The Catholic Diocese of Wilmington issued the following statement regarding Padua Academy:
For the past several days Bishop Malooly has been working behind the scenes in conversation with leadership from the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales and several members of the Padua Academy Advisory Board in efforts to resolve this painful and divisive situation.   At the request of Bishop Malooly, Oblate leadership invited Mrs. Cindy Mann and Father Nicholas Waseline to sit down with an independent mediator in the hopes of beginning a conversation toward reconciliation. Father Waseline responded favorably to this invitation; Mrs. Mann did not. Moreover, because Mrs. Mann has indicated that she intends to file a lawsuit, it appears that further conversation with her is not possible at this time. Bishop Malooly continues to be hopeful for the possibility of reconciliation.
