By

Dialog reporter

 

CLAYMONT – Padua took control early in its nonconference soccer game at Archmere on May 2, scoring five first-half goals on the way to a 6-0 win. Julia Detwiler and Ashlee Brentlinger each scored a pair of goals and added an assist for the Pandas, the top-ranked team in Delaware.

Padua controlled possession throughout and peppered Auks keeper Kyra Giakas with shots all afternoon. Those times Archmere was able to extend into Pandas territory, the visitors’ formidable back line sealed the door shut. Padua keeper Katie Szczerba was called on to make just one save. Read more »

The postponement of the Mass at St. John the Beloved Church honoring police, firefighters and emergency workers was requested by the Wilmington Police Department on behalf of the area’s law enforcement communities, so more first responders will have the opportunity to attend the May 5 memorial service for Delaware State Police Corporal Stephen Ballard, who was killed in the line of duty April 26.

In addition to Corporal Ballard, Blue Mass organizers this year have planned to honor fallen Wilmington firefighters Captain Christopher Leach and Lieutenants Jerry Fickes and Ardythe Hope; Lewes firefighter Timothy McClanahan; Delaware Correctional Officer, Sergeant Steven Floyd; Dover Police Department’s Patrolman Robert DaFonte and Cadet James Watts; and Ocean City firefighter and paramedic, Howard Allen Schweitzer.

Collection to support retired priests of the diocese set for May 21, 22

April 30th, 2017 Posted in Our Diocese, Vocations

By

 

A special collection to benefit the Diocesan Priests’ Retirement Fund will be held in parishes in the Diocese of Wilmington the weekend of May 21 and 22. The annual collection began in 2015 to supplement the fund due to growing priest pension needs.

“Currently, about 30 percent of our diocesan priests are retired; with many more either approaching retirement age, or working well past the age of retirement,” said Bishop Malooly. “It is our obligation to assure that these men, who have dedicated their lives to care for the spiritual needs of the people of our diocese, are taken care of in their golden years. I ask our people to be generous, and to pray for our aged priests, and pray for increased vocations to the priesthood.”

Since its inception, the special collection has added over $160,000 to the Diocesan Priests’ Retirement fund.

‘Healing presence’ after a broken marriage

Judicial Vicar sees the role of the Tribunal as working sympathetically with those seeking an annulment

When Pope Francis streamlined the Tribunal process through which divorced Catholics may acquire an annulment, many hailed it as a breakthrough in how the Catholic Church works with people whose marriages have failed.

Father Mark Mealey, who heads the Tribunal for the Diocese of Wilmington, believes the new procedures announced in December 2016 have speeded the process — cases within the diocese now are usually resolved within six months — and ensured that the proceedings are not financially prohibitive.
