KImberly Hahn's parents?


#1

Are they Catholics?


#2

Why?


#3

I don’t believe so. I thought both she and Scott came from Protestant, fairly anti-Catholic homes.


#4

I was wondering if they became catholics???


#5

I think that they are Presbyterian. Kimberly Hahn’s father was a Presbyterian minister, and he was the one that introduced Scott to Pope John Paul II when Scott first came into the Catholic Church and met the Pope.
I have never heard that they had converted.


#6

As I remember:

Kimberly’s father is an Epicopal Bishop, he intoroduced Scott to the Pope when an ecumenical group of religious leaders met in Rome to discuss the evil of pornography in the world


#7

Kimberly’s Father is not Catholic, but very Catholic Friendly. He spoke last year at Franciscan University on the dangers of Pornography.


#8

Yes I read about that. I am sure that Hahn’s association with Fransican University played a part…

Pornography is a terrible sin that plagues our society placing children and families at great risk and harm.

We had a deacon a few years back that discussed addiction to pornography and the harm it does to society.

Also, I remember seeing a picture of Pope John Paul II, the Episcopal Bishop [that I understood was Kimberly’s dad] and Scott Hahn…

Scott was a Presbyterian Minister…an earlier post sadi Kimberly’s dad was presbyterian I am sure he is very high in the Episcople Church…

From this website, Scott Hahn says:

My father-in-law, the Presbyterian minister, inviting me to meet the Pope? I said, “Yes.” So last January I not only met with the Pope in this small group, but I also was invited to join him in his private chapel for Friday morning Mass at 7:00 a.m.


#10

Thanks, perhaps in the picture I saw of the Pope meeting Scott Hahn with an Epicopal Bishop nearby was not Kimberly’s dad and I made the wrong assumption that it was…Guess we should not make assumptions as the old saying goes…

Thanks for the correction/clarification and the link


#11

You’re welcome.:slight_smile:


#12

does anyone remember the prayer that Kimberly's Father told her to pray for the Grace to say? I can't remember what it said exactly, it was a very meaningful prayer though as I recall.


#13

It was something like "Lord, I will go whereever you want me to go, I will do whatever you want me to do, I will say whatever you want me to say".
