Continue to contact the Chancery and Archbishop Carlson

The Diocesan document on transgendered students was released right before the end of the school year and the writers did not intend to show it to parents.  If you have tried to contact the Chancery staff recently you have most likely gone straight to voicemail and they have not called you back.  There is no dialogue despite what they imply.  This should upset anyone who is Catholic and donates money to the Diocese or anyone who pays tuition because their salaries are entirely paid by you.  They work for you and they do not have the authority to use your money to make decisions about your children that violate Church teaching.  Start with your pastor and be persistent in calling but if you cannot get through then contact Bishop Gaydos’ superior Archbishop Robert J. Carlson.

“The Diocese of Jefferson City is a suffragan, or subordinate, of the Metropolitan See of St. Louis. Pope Pius XII established the Diocese on November 27, 1956 from the Archdiocese of St. Louis, the Diocese of Kansas City and the former Diocese of St. Joseph.”

You should also carbon copy the Papal Nuncio, especially since these people misquote Pope Francis, who isn’t here to defend himself.
