Important Update regarding the Metropolitan Tribunal in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey:
First and foremost, all of us at the Tribunal wish to express our prayer and solidarity with everyone who has been affected by this storm. As a part of the Houston community, we too have been grieving over the past few days as our friends and neighbors and families suffered from the effects of this devastating flood.
We have already received several inquiries from people who were concerned that the Metropolitan Tribunal may have flooded and lost their cases. I am happy to tell you that the Metropolitan Tribunal did not flood and that all of your case files are still safely with us.
Additionally, if you had a due date for some required action that was missed due to the Hurricane Harvey or its aftermath, please contact us when you are able so that we can make the necessary adjustments.
I do, however, want to inform you about possible delays in the coming weeks. While the Metropolitan Tribunal itself was not affected, the flooding has impacted our staff and their families. Therefore, I ask for your patience with any delays that may result as our staff recovers from the effects of the storm and work towards normal efficiency.
Finally, we have made the decision to reschedule the upcoming Fall 2017 Nullity Case Sponsor Training. The new dates are as follows:
January 13 and 20, 2018
February 3 and 10, 2018
March 3 and 17, 2018
For those who are unable to attend the new dates, we will be able to issue refunds for any payments that we received. To register, go to https://archgh.cvent.com/NullityCaseSponsorTraining2017.
In the meantime, we ask for your prayers. Be assured that we are united in prayer and support for each and every single one of you and your families.
Your servant in Christ,
Fr. Luke Millette, JCL
