At least one U.S. parish will pass on “serving those who serve” this weekend.

In a letter dated Wednesday, Fr. Timothy Taugher, pastor of St. Francis of Assisi Church in Binghampton, N.Y., alerted his bishop that the parish would not participate in the bishops’ conference-approved collection this weekend for the U.S. Archdiocese for the Military Services.

 

[Fr. Taugher is a member of the Upstate NY CTA board.]
