Father Frank Pavone's Appeal Upheld by Vatican's Congregation for the Clergy

Priests for Life


We are happy to announce that the Vatican has upheld Father Frank Pavone's appeal and has declared that Father Pavone is not now nor has ever been suspended. Father Pavone remains a priest in good standing all over the world.

We were confident all along that a just decision would be made by the Vatican's Congregation for the Clergy. While we fully agree that Bishop Zurek has rightful authority over the priests of his diocese, we also see the urgent need for Father Pavone to be allowed to conduct his priestly ministry outside the diocese of Amarillo for the good of the pro-life movement.

Huzzah, he's back! Now we can finally END ABORTION!!

If the Vatican is upholding Fr Pavone's appeal, then they are saying that none of the issues (financial, behavioral, etc.) had any sort of foundation. Of course, we must respect the office that the Bishop holds, and the Vatican is taking the prudent approach with this situation, which is good, and Father Pavone isn’t thumbing his nose at the bishop and is continuing a bettering of their relationship as priest and bishop, so good all around I must say.
