It saddened me to hear of Father Robert Kelly’s being placed on leave from his post at Sts. Peter and Paul Church in Philipsburg.
I will be ever grateful for the sound instruction, kindness and wisdom shown to me by Father Kelly when he welcomed me into the Catholic Church with confirmation in 1977 at Our Lady of Victory in State College.
I pray that God will shed his grace on all of us and bring this unfortunate situation to a speedy resolution so that we may remain focused this Lent on renewal and gratitude to God for the gift of salvation won for us by the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
