Last week, Bishop Estevez began his series of 10 listening sessions around the diocese where he invited everyone to participate in giving him feedback about the diocese. What an opportunity this is - to tell the Bishop what we think! It will give him information that could be very valuable in the decision-making process for the future of the diocese. I hope as many people as possible would take this opportunity to express their thoughts to him.
Some disappointing comments had to do with things that the Bishop has no control over such as the issue of women priests. More had to do with very personal and parochial matters of noble worth but without practical solutions usually involving the appropriation of funds which are presently in very short supply. And, then, there were some very insightful and valuable comments. All of these comments will be compiled after the 10 listening sessions for the Bishop and his staff to consider.
From this radio ministry’s point of view, we were overwhelmed by the numerous favorable comments about QOP Radio and how valuable it has been. Several people suggested to the Bishop that he use it more often for teachings about the faith, about the controversy involving the first amendment, and advice regarding issues of importance in the news.
We continue to offer the time to the Bishop to use this ministry for his pastoral messages. Now, what do you think?
Each mention of QOP Radio brought unanimous applause from the audience which we enjoyed hearing. We hope that you concur.
Let the light of our Lord shine upon you!
