Hello. I’ve been troubled the last 4 months with some issues at my parish. I’ve learned a deep lesson that still hurts but I will continue in my faith as I’ve young ones to bring up in the Catholic faith.
My question is should one be ostracized for questioning the directions of funds for a social ministry or other social works by the priest in one’s parish? Even the financial committee can not get answers from him on the direction of other funds.
Also, since I technically am a “leper” in my parish, why are the priviledged “accusers” still able to be eucharistic ministers even though they are still mudding my name around the parish even though I’ve done no wrong. I’ve only bandaged the bleeding for many (8-9) months that was created by a thieving employee of ten+ years.
My crime I assume is being told I could no longer have anything to do with this social ministry and also backed away from the drug programs which I started in our parish. Those who step in are angry I assume because they were not aware of the amount of HARD WORK required to continue this ministry. I’ll call them “yes people” for the priest.
I’ve been accused of everything that’s gone wrong, as if I was the thief, not the philandering employee.
Please advise. The heat is becoming more intense in TX and is getting to my mental state of mind.
