Bishop warns Diocese about demonstrations against Catholic Churches in Washington

The Archdiocese of Washington, DC, has warned priests that an unidentified group of protesters has staged demonstrations outside local Catholic churches, and in at least two cases entered the church to disrupt services.

Bishop Barry Knestout, the vicar general of the archdiocese, has written to all local priests, alerting them to the possibility of demonstrations. He reports that the group has used bullhorns to shout anti-Catholic slogans and has passed out “fundamentalist literature.” The bishop’s letter advises priests to alert their parish staff members, to be prepared for the possibility of demonstrations, and to contact police if there is any danger of disruptions.
