Father White Support Richmond
RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Dozens showed up outside mass in Richmond Friday to show their support for a priest suspended after blogging about sexual abuse committed by the clergy.
Nearly 50 parishioners silently protested and prayed outside the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in Richmond on Friday. Many drove over three hours to show their support of Father Mark White and stand in opposition to Bishop Barry Knestout and his decisions to suspend him.
“I think Father Mark did what he felt God was calling him to do,” said Judy Rogers.
