UPDATE - It is confirmed. The Hancock presentation has been canceled.
The story that we broke over the weekend about an occult event at St. Joseph's in Belmont was investigated today on several levels at the Archdiocese and it appears the event has been cancelled.
While there is no formal confirmation yet, the event is no longer listed on the bulletin at St. Joseph's and it is no longer on Hancock's schedule of events.
This is actually a very surprising outcome. These kinds of events have come and gone in the archdiocese from time to time and we have not been able to get action taken on them. Dare we hope that this is a sign that our concerns are going to be taken seriously?
Thanks to all who responded, contacted the pastor, surrounding parishes to warn other pastors, the Bishops and others in the Archdiocese to expressed your concerns.
Finally, thank you to those in the Archdiocese who did the right thing, standing up to protect the grieving and broken.
