Over the past eighteen months since I have been your pastor, I have received more anonymous letters than I have in the entirety of my priesthood. This has really surprised me since this is such a parish of professional people. These letters have run the gamut from: complaints about me and my decisions as pastor (used to that); complaints about other parishioners and when and how I am going to correct them; to what I consider to be very un-Christian rants that are just mean-spirited and, frankly, in one case, racist and bigoted. Every once in a while I receive an anonymous letter that makes a good point. But how exactly am I to address these questions and
complaints? If I am that difficult to talk to, I apologize. If these are real concerns, then please sign your name and set up a meeting to discuss them with me. Maybe I can help; maybe I can’t. But there is no way anything can be resolved if problems are cloaked in anonymity. Thanks for listening. I promise you I will listen to you.
