Fr. Swink is an asset to the community, parish and Archbishop Neale. He is an “in your face” kind of priest. We need more like him. He stands up for what’s right and what’s wrong. That man has saved my life and healed my soul because of his honesty and truth from the heart. Keeping him away from the school community allows evil to win. Keep being the wonderful priest you are Fr. Swink. We will continue to pray for you and all priest.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I put my name down because to hear of a child being oppressed for his beliefs is terrible but to hear his oppression being supported by the diocese of Washington is worse.

The censuring of Fr Larry Swink and barring him from teaching in an ADW school is just wrong. He is a wonderful, faithful priest, always upholding authentic Catholic teaching. Isn't this what Catholics schools should be about? Please reinstate him now and support faithful teaching in Catholic schools!

Thanks for adding your voice.

Regardless of what you bieve if you send your child to a Catholic school they need to respect the catholic teachings. Everyone knows the catholic church is pro life and if you cant respect that or your child cant respect that then even if you claim you want your child to have a better education do not send them to a catholic school. You listen to the catholic school not the other way around.

Catholic teaching expressly condemns abortion. No Catholic priest should suffer for defending this Catholic teaching.

Fr. Swink is one of the priests we the faithful can count on. He should be able to count on us as well.

Thanks for adding your voice.

I am seriously confused. Isn’t the whole reason Catholic churches and schools are organized is to have a place where like minded people can learn and share their faith and life vision?

First of all, going to a Catholic Church and being upset about being taught that pro-life is good and that abortion is a sin is like buying a product you know and then getting mad that you got exactly what you paid for.

Openly espousing abortion within a Catholic church and school is where I draw the line. If you don’t like that message, fine, but don’t try to change what our faith is about. There a plenty of charter schools out their for your kid. Shame on the Archdiocese for cowering down to the bullying of the parents and selling out their faith and one of their own.
