On August 14, under the Child Victims Act, a one-time “look-back” window of one year’s duration will open during which adults who were abused as children may file claims, no matter how long ago the abuse allegedly occurred. Bishop Douglas J. Lucia shared a message to the people of the diocese in advance of that date.
‘In the name of Jesus’: Bishop Douglas J. Lucia is ordained and installed as 11th bishop of Syracuse
Despite cloudy skies outside, there was plenty of light inside the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception Aug. 8 as Bishop Douglas J. Lucia was ordained and installed as the eleventh bishop of the Diocese of Syracuse.
Bishop-elect Douglas J. Lucia has said the best sermon you can give is the one given with your life. As Evening Prayer was celebrated Aug. 7, the night before his ordination and installation as the eleventh bishop of the Diocese of Syracuse, his sermon asked those gathered to consider if they were indeed “a living Gospel for all people to hear.”
