Message from Archbishop Chaput: Thoughts on the Commission report, one week later

Archbishop Charles Chaput Posted on January 12th, 2012

Over the past week, I’ve received hundreds of emails about the report of our Blue Ribbon Commission on Catholic Education. The report calls for the closing or merger of dozens of our archdiocesan schools. Philadelphia has a long and venerable Catholic school tradition. So it’s no surprise that, while quite a few emails have expressed […]

Message from Archbishop Chaput: Education, the Church and the legacy of John Neumann

Archbishop Charles Chaput Posted on January 5th, 2012

The Church in Philadelphia has the benefit of two excellent monthly publications in The Catholic Standard and Times and Phaith magazine. But life happens on a daily basis. A bishop needs to speak with his people much more frequently than once a month. So beginning today, I’ll be writing this weekly web column as a […]

Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception
Dear friends in Christ,
Exactly three months ago, on September 8, I was installed as Archbishop of Philadelphia.  In the weeks since, traveling the archdiocese, I’ve been struck by two things I encounter again and again: the reservoir of good will in our people, and the fidelity of our priests.

Solemnidad de la Inmaculada Concepción
Queridos amigos en Cristo:
Exactamente hace tres meses, el 8 de septiembre, fui instalado como Arzobispo de Filadelfia. En las semanas posteriores, en mis viajes por la Arquidiócesis, he sido impresionado por dos cosas que encuentro una y otra vez: el reservorio de buena voluntad en nuestro pueblo, […]

A time to refocus our hearts

Posted on December 2nd, 2011

In Christian worship, an antiphon is a special prayer […]
