We are proud to share the news – six Cross Catholic Outreach Priests are among the clergy recommissioned this month by Pope Francis to serve indefinitely as Missionaries of Mercy. In an interview with CNS News, Cross Catholic’s Father Bernard Olszewski said, “Pope Francis has asked us to be models and to show the behavior of a forgiving God.”
Monsignor Ted Bertagni, Cross Catholic’s director of clergy and diocesan relations, described his work as a Missionary of Mercy as a “very moving experience” in which he has been able to facilitate “moments of real catharsis” with those who confess.
