We at Catholics for Unity and Peace would like to congratulate you on your new assignment at St. Paul’s Catholic Church in Marion, Indiana.

We feel confident that you will be a source of hope for the parishioners at the Marion Parish. As you may know, we have held several prayer rallies as a way to bring parishioners in our Diocese, and indeed around the country, to pray for you. Our CUP supporters have been steadfast in their support for you and are thrilled that you have been reinstated in your priestly duties.

Our prayers continue for you as you begin your new assignment and we pray that you will find peace and healing there.

    Prayers and congratulations from Michigan Fr Ted. I hope you receive some sense of satisfaction in knowing that your courage uplifted many, many of us who had become so downhearted by an upside down world and everyone afraid to say “the emporer has no clothes on”. Truth matters.

    God Bless You!

  17. John A Galizia

    Father Ted, God bless you for being a true Shepherd of Christ. If I want to hear out and out lies I certainly will not go to your Parish. Please continue to tell the truth of Christ and steer away from modernist doctrines and statements from some Bishops who are trying to des6our Church from within. Lord Jesus please watch over this priest who is true to your teachings.🙏✝️🙏

  18. Lloyd & Mary Ann Bookmyer

    We are gratified by your reinstatement especially because you are the kind of priest our Church desperately needs – one that knows the truth and has the fortitude to proclaim it. We wrote Bishop Doherty at the time of your dismissal and expressed these same sentiments to him. We also told the Bishop that we found it most offensive that he insinuated that, not only were you wrong, but that you needed re-education on the matter. This was appalling and showed how out of touch Bishop Doherty really is.

  19. Lori

    May God bless you for your bravery and concern for your flock. Keep being Christ’s Shepherd no matter what and your reward will be great in heaven.
