New Statement from the Diocese of Covington22 Jan

Earlier today, the Diocese of Covington released the following statement:

On Monday afternoon the Covington Police alerted us that they had intelligence concerning a planned protest, Jan. 22, at Covington Catholic High School and a vigil at the Diocesan Curia. Due to threats of violence and the possibility of large crowds the Diocese was advised to close Covington Catholic High School, the Diocesan Curia and neighboring Covington Latin School. We thank law enforcement officers for their protection and will reopen when they say it is safe to do so.

Concerning the incident in Washington, D.C., between Covington Catholic students, Elder Nathan Phillips and Black Hebrew Israelites the independent, third-party investigation is planned to begin this week. This is a very serious matter that has already permanently altered the lives of many people. It is important for us to gather the facts that will allow us to determine what corrective actions, if any, are appropriate.

We pray that we may come to the truth and that this unfortunate situation may be resolved peacefully and amicably and ask others to join us in this prayer.

We will have no further statements until the investigation is complete.

You have an important role to play in this process.  Legislators will soon have to grapple with significant issues related to health care, education, tax policy and the criminal justice system. Candidates for office need to hear from you now in order to start the conversation on issues that they will consider during the next legislative session and beyond. No matter who wins on Election Day, a large number of seats will be held by first time candidates who may be new to the work of the Catholic Conference of Kentucky (“CCK”).

To help start these conversations, CCK has prepared a one-page handout that highlights those issues in which we have an opportunity to make an impact in the near future.  You can view it by clicking here.

Please study the document and engage with candidates on issues that will be in play during the 2019 legislative session.  More importantly, share the document  with friends and distribute copies at your schools and parishes.  

Thank you for your faithful citizenship!
