Brett Metzler, a seminarian from the Fort Worth Catholic Diocese who is studying at Saint Joseph’s Seminary College in Covington, Louisiana, was featured in an excellent news story by reporter / anchor Tracy Kornet on CBS Channel 11.
Brett is one of 28 men who are currently studying at various seminaries from the Fort Worth Catholic Diocese. He is a member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Denton. In 2001, the Diocese had only 12 men studying for the priesthood. Over the last decade, increased vocations have been a diocesan priority.
The Texas Catholic Bishop, through the Texas Catholic Conference, are working diligently with Texas legislators to improve Texas law dealing with end-of-life care. Thousands of Catholics, including members of the Catholic Diocese of Fort Worth, were in Austin as part of the TCC Advocacy Day to urge legislators to support Senate Bill 303 which is the end-of-the life bill and other measures that are part of the Texas bishops legislative priorities.
A column by Father Tad Pacholczyk of the National Catholic Bioethics Center explains the importance of the end-of-life legislation which is now under consideration.
