Latest Developments

In December of 2022, the Vatican announced that it was dismissing Frank from the priesthood. The documentation below provides an in-depth explanation of this development.

November 2023: In November of 2023, Dr. Alveda King, who has been associated with us since 1999 and who served fulltime for 16 years on the Priests for Life team, wrote a letter of encouragement to our Priests for Life family. As a member of our Board of Directors and an associate of our team, Alveda continues to urge unity within the Church and the pro-life movement rather than shunning one another.

At the same time, our chief canonical advisor Fr. Dave Deibel, who has worked with us for decades and knows all the ins and outs of our interaction with Church hierarchy, wrote a letter clarifying my status as a Catholic in good standing, and clarifying that neither Priests for Life nor I are supposed to be shunned as a result of the developments of the last year. We are still doing the work of the Church and it is worthy of full support.
