Is Wave Fair?
Is Wave Fair?
On Saturday afternoon April 13, I was sitting at my table reading The Wave. I wasn't going to read the Wave due to the article last week on the front page, regarding St. Rose of Lima Church. I am not a writer however, I do have a few things I would like to say.
First, yes you do have to report the news but the way you reported it was
just not right. A priest allegedly committed this terrible sin, not a
building. Putting the priest's picture on the front page, not my church might have been better.
How come St. Rose's Food Pantry, Lifeteen, Bereavement Groups, or any of the many other support groups that go on in the parish have not been headline worthy?
My son is an alter server at St. Rose of Lima and has been for a number of
years (5). He has received nothing but care, guidance, encouragement and understanding from the priests who are assigned there. The pastor, Father Peter, encourages parents to take an active part in their children's roles in the parish. He always says at mass, please come in do not just drop your children off at the front door.
Father Peter has done a great job with our parish and to have the Wave only take the negative side was surprising.
I have read the Wave for many years and while I have sometimes disagreed with some of the articles, I always thought the paper was fair, I am not so sure anymore.
