Encore! Encore!

Last year St. Bernard's School of Theology and Ministry offered a presentation for priests only entitled Dealing With Difficult Parishioners (see here).

Well, it looks like there are still some pesky parishioners out there who need to be dealt with, as the French Road Heresy Factory is offering the same talk this spring.

It seems a bit interesting that the flyer advertising the talk also contains a blurb for phone-in mental health services. Could it be that those difficult parishioners are causing high levels of stress among some of our clergy?

I'm still waiting for St. Bernard's to offer the laity a talk on dealing with difficult pastors and staff (but I'm not holding my breath).

Only for priests? How is Sr. Sobala going to learn how to deal with the parishioners of St. Anne if she is deprived of this opportunity?

Perhaps a better title for the program would be "Learn how to defend all the heresy you learned at St. Bernard's workshop"

Nice post! Good point too! Are you sure that there isn't a little progressive side to you that you're not willing to admit? :)
