Local Catholics Gather In Celebration Despite Controversies

Thousands of people showed up before sunrise for a day-long celebration of Catholicism in the Twin Cities Saturday. The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis hosted the “2013 Rediscover” event at the RiverCentre in St. Paul, described as a celebration of “the depth and beauty” of the Catholic faith. The event, headlined by Archbishop John Nienstedt, was held in the midst of controversy after a priest pleaded guilty to sexual misconduct, child pornography was discovered on a reverend’s laptop and the diocese announced they were creating a taskforce to investigate the way church officials handled accusations.
