WOW @RobertM is it good to see you back, I’ve thought of your mission work a lot recently, sadly your career is in demand right now
The Diocese where I am located recently issued this email
Dear Fellow Disciples,
You may have heard about the hoax active shooter situation at Nouvel Catholic High School and at the diocesan headquarters last week. Here’s the story:
Referring to that incident, the diocese yesterday promulgated this new weapons policy (below), which also pertains to all parishes and the Sacred Heart Mission. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jane Sills email@example.com or 989-797-6657.
While on any property or facility within the Diocese of Saginaw, employees and visitors (including vendors, contractors and volunteers) are prohibited from carrying weapons. Weapons include, but are not limited to, guns, knives, devices, substances, or any explosive material that could cause destruction or bodily harm.
This general prohibition includes visible or concealed weapons, even those for which the owner has a valid permit pursuant to Michigan’s Firearms Statute, Act 372 of 1927, MCLA 28.421, et seq.
Exceptions to this prohibition may include those individuals listed as being allowed to carry under MCL 28.425o (5a-k), such as law enforcement officials.
The Diocese reserves the right to search any person entering its property or while performing services for the Diocese offsite. This includes the right to search property, equipment and storage areas including but not limited to, clothing, personal effects, vehicles, buildings, rooms, facilities, offices, parking lots, desks, cabinets, lunch and equipment boxes or bags and equipment.
Any employee found to be in violation of this policy will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal. The Diocese reserves the right to report to law enforcement any individual or individuals in violation of this policy.
Four days in a row I responded, only one of the four was responded to so far
This is it, in its entirety
I’ve asked for discourse, if there’s more to expect, offered to dialogue, sent links I found here to demonstrate the need for defensive posture, today is a new week, I don’t know where this will go or what to do but believe in the cause enough to go further if you have advice on the matter, in any cordial manner of course.
Thanks again for posting
