The Diocese of Des Moines

Note regarding appearance of medium — 

In response to inquiries about the appearance of Theresa Caputo at the Des Moines Civic Center on Nov. 5, the Diocese of Des Moines received the following information from Msgr. Robert O. Morrissey, JCD, secretary to the Bishop of Rockville Centre: "The Diocese of Rockville Centre has made no statement or taken any position for or against Theresa Caputo. Actually, she is unknown to the diocese. If asked or consulted, we certainly would not support this. No Catholic institution within the diocese would be allowed to support a 'medium.' The Catechism of the Catholic Church clearly forbids any involvement with such things. Again, the work of Theresa Caputo or the practice of her Catholic faith is unknown to our Bishop."
