Just for the information of the CCV readers, following was the letter sent to the parishioners of the Archdiocese of St. Louis (USA) by Archbishop Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson. The letter was sent with the questionnaire attached. It is a shame that Indian bishops ignored the catholic families in India as well as didn’t follow the instruction of Pope Francis.
