Bishop Donald Kettler told members of the diocesan Presbyteral Council that more research was needed into the pros and cons of allowing outdoor weddings before he would make a decision about whether to allow them in the Diocese of St. Cloud.
Members of the diocesan Presbyteral Council heard reports about the diocese’s pastoral planning process, adult lay education efforts and the diocese’s plan to file for bankruptcy reorganization at their meeting Sept. 18 at the Chancery in St. Cloud.
The priests of the Diocese of St. Cloud support having another diocesan-wide Festival of Forgiveness next year, although they may consider making changes to the format, according to members of the Presbyteral Council who met March 20 in St. Cloud.
