Just received e-mail below from Msgr Byrnes.
Msgr Byrnes was ordained on November 15, 1986, by Cardinal O'Connor at Saint Patrick's Cathedral in New York City and has been in Ridgefield, CT, for approximately two years. Msgr. Byrnes has not been conditionally ordained since the SSPX has stated that Msgr's ordination was valid. I was personally told by two priests in Ridgefield that there is nothing to question as the SSPX's own investigation into the ordination confirmed that the matter, form, and intent were all valid and that I should not question this.
Why would the SSPX allow a Novus Order trained and ordained priest to be a principal?
Last Thursday I received a call from our District Superior Fr. Wegner, informing me that I am to be the principal of St. Padre Pio Academy beginning with the new school year.
Fr. Sulzen has kept me in the loop about the desire for all of you to have a meeting with the principal regarding some concerns you have about the high school program for next year, and I know that there has been some difficulty in getting a meeting date because of vacation schedules and that the date currently set for the meeting is in July, a date later than most would prefer.
Given everyone’s desire to meet as soon as possible, I am proposing having our meeting this Tuesday evening (9 June) at 7:30 PM in Jogues Hall. Please let me know as soon as possible if this will work for you. If the majority cannot make this day, we will stick with the date in July. I realize that this is rather short notice, but I hope this date will work for everyone, or at least most.
I look forward to working with all of you during the coming school year.
