A Message From Bishop Olmsted
Official message from the Diocese of Phoenix:
Greetings in Christ,
Bishop Olmsted has heard from many of you about how the current scandals surrounding the Church have affected you, and now he would like to hear from all of you.
Please visit this new website and take a few minutes to share your thoughts. Bishop Olmsted will review your responses and share the information with his brother Bishops.
We launched this new website in response to the scandal so that we could share with you the systems of accountably that are in place to provide protection and accountability in the Diocese of Phoenix.
Additionally, we want to share with you good resources about current events, as well as ways to find healing through prayer.
Through this new website, Bishop Olmsted is asking all of us to:
Keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, our Savior and Lord.
Together we must continue to go forth in our mission as disciples of Christ and faithful witnesses of His Gospel — always keeping our eyes fixed on Him.
May God bless you.
“[L]et us rid ourselves of every burden and sin that clings to us and persevere in running the race that lies before us while keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, the leader and perfecter of faith. For the sake of the joy that lay before Him He endured the cross, despising its shame, and has taken His seat at the right of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1-2
