Official Update from Reverend David Deibel, Canonical Advisor

December 16, 2011

Father Frank remains a priest in good standing with the Church. In fact, he is currently has an assignment in the Diocese of Amarillo as a chaplain to a group of sisters in the diocese where he exercises his priestly ministry with the full approval of his bishop. In addition, he continues his pro-life ministry as he has done for many years. He has not been accused of any wrongdoing or fiscal misconduct. Priests for Life remains an association of the faithful within the understanding of the Church's discipline. The appeal to higher Church authority on behalf of Father Pavone and Priests for Life is an exercise of the rights of Father Pavone and the association within Church law and is in no way dismissive of or rebellious to the authority of the bishop. Rather, Father Frank remains obedient to his bishop in carrying out his assignment in Amarillo. The Pastoral Team and Board of Directors of Priests for Life unanimously support Father Frank's leadership as well as the plans and programs in place for the coming year. Finally, Priests for Life continues to enjoy support of Church leaders, including two cardinals and twenty bishops of the advisory board, and the pro-life community at large.

Reverend David L. Deibel, JD, JCL
