A note from Bishop Athanasius Schneider

Laudetur Iesus Christus! On this the Vigil of Epiphany, and Holy Family weekend (Sunday), we have an important message to share regarding marriage and family.

Bishop Athanasius Schneider who, as many of you recall, paid a historic visit to St. Ann last October has issued a document with his brother Kazakh Bishops called “Profession of the Immutable Truths” defending marriage and the Eucharist against some of the confusion coming about with regards to the divorced and “remarried”.

His Excellency has passed along this important document.  He sends his greetings to all and has encouraged us to spread the word among the faithful. We encourage all to read the document its entirety – it’s a beautiful yet simple document. Please feel free to share with others. You can read the document here:


In your charity, please offer prayers for Bishop Schneider, as well as our Bishop Peter Jugis, and all priests that they will continue to defend our Blessed Lord’s teaching on marriage and the Eucharist.
