Mission and Purpose

The purpose of this commission is to assist the Diocesan Bishop in protecting the faithful from the scourges of pornography. Using the best practices of Integrity Restored and other reputable organizations, the commission will work to implement initiatives and programmatic change throughout the Diocese so that souls are not left vulnerable to the evil of pornography.

Our mission is to effectively aid the faithful in the fight against pornography through formation, education, encouragement, and resources. We journey alongside clergy, religious, individuals, parents, spouses, children, and families to restore and protect the dignity given us by God. We will strive to provide freedom, prevention, and healing to the faithful of our Diocese so that souls are not harmed by pornography.

Window Light in Church

"I established the Lumen Christi Commission to help in the pastoral planning of addressing the burgeoning issue of pornography.

Pornography exists in the darkness, but the Light of Christ can conquer it by grace and forgiveness."
