Bishop Timothy Doherty Discusses
Poverty, the Pope, Today’s Youth, the Election & More
Last night, LUM Pizza & Perspectives hosted by the LUM Board of Directors featured remarks by the most Reverend Timothy L. Doherty, S.T.L., Ph.D., the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Lafayette-in-Indiana.
Bishop Timothy Doherty joined the attendees for pizza and then offered remarks about a number of topics. He began by giving an overview of the pastoral letter from the Catholic Bishops of Indiana entitled “Poverty at the Crossroads: The Church’s Response to Poverty in Indiana.” He then entertained questions which led to discussions about immigration, health care, Pope Francis, today’s youth, the upcoming election, and downtown Lafayette. Bishop Doherty concluded his remarks with a sincere thanks to the LUM Board of Directors and staff for the remarkable and meaningful work happening at LUM to strengthen and uplift local families. A special thank you to Bishop Timothy Doherty for taking the time to share his thoughts and expertise with the friends, board members and staff of the Lafayette Urban Ministry.
