Recent media reports have distorted the scheduling of the meeting that Cardinal Egan has called with the Archdiocesan Priest’s Council.

The meeting with the Priest’s Council that was originally scheduled for Monday, October 16 at 11:00 a.m. was scheduled before the death of Monsignor Charles Kelly.  At the request of Monsignor Kelly’s family, his funeral was subsequently scheduled for Monday morning at 10:00 a.m. 

In order to allow as many members as possible of the Priest’s Council to attend the meeting, Cardinal Egan has rescheduled his meeting for 1:00 p.m. Monday afternoon.

It is unfortunate that some members of the media seem determined to spread malicious misinformation without bothering to check facts or determine the truth.
