A Few Words from Monsignor Jerald Doyle


The episcopal vicar for the Diocese of Bridgeport, Monsignor Jerald Doyle was chosen as the administrator of the diocese until a new bishop is named.

That process is expected to take 8-10 months. Doyle, 68 and a Bridgeport native, reflects on his new post tending to the spiritual needs of Fairfield County’s 450,000 Roman Catholics:

“Being named Diocesan Administrator is not something that happens in the
lifetime of every priest. I’ve been a priest for 43 years, and I’m pleased
to help keep the Diocese on an even keel until a new Bishop comes on board.

“The nature of the job basically is to keep the Diocese operating and to be
sustain things that were already underway, but not to initiative any major
projects that would be the prerogative of the next bishop. Of course, we never know what kind of unexpected challenges we may face.”

“In many ways, a lot of what I’ll be doing was what I was doing before hand in
the general administration of the diocese. I’ll have the full support of
the senior leadership team of the diocese, which was put together by
Archbishop Lori and is still in place to manage our schools, charities and
other initiatives.”

    G.D. Flye, you are a propagandizing Leftist idiot. Stop with the lies. The bishop didn’t force his beliefs on you. Rather the Marxist-in-chief is forcing his beliefs on the Catholic Church, which is a violation of the First Amendment. The Catholic Church does not condone discrimination against gays (there is no such thing as “gay marriage”, marriage is defined as one man and one woman), and health care “reform” is already destroying the greatest health care system in the world. Premiums are going up. People are being dropped from their coverage, and anyone who doesn’t have coverage will be forced to pay a fine. The government never runs ANYTHING right (look at the post office and the DMV, for instance), and this is just another example. Communism does not work.

    In other words you are going to continue Lori’s attempts to force his own religous beliefs on the rest of us including discrimination against gay people and trying to destroy health care reform
