Father Chad Ripperger and his order are being welcomed by Bp. Samuel Aquila
DENVER (ChurchMilitant.com) - A traditional group of exorcist priests, the Doloran Fathers, also known as the Society of the Most Sorrowful Mother, are moving their ministry to Denver.
News of the move has been circulating on blogs and has been confirmed by those close to the Doloran Fathers. Neither the archdiocese of Denver nor the Dolorans themselves have yet to release an official statement.
Father Chad Ripperger, founder of the Dolorans, was asked to leave the Tulsa, Oklahoma diocese in September 2016, shortly after Bp. David Konderla was ordained bishop of Tulsa in June 2016.
Church Militant spoke with Joseph Ostermeir, author of the blog Okie Traditionalist and the first to break the news of the Dolorans' banishment from Tulsa. "From our experience, Latin Mass communities are often treated like weirdos and outsiders by many dioceses," Ostermeir commented. "And Fr. Ripperger's exorcist society is a Latin Mass community."

Did they have to move to Denver?! I mean, Gee...don’t we have enough crack pots already?! I’m a Denverite and I don’t hurl green soup so maybe I’ll be OK. Denver has got a 24 hour comedy radio station. This could be fun.
Rippenger has a Ph.D is psychology and one of the best speakers on the topic of masculinity in the Church.
Oklahoma’s loss is Denver’s gain
Can they move to Vatican City instead?
It obviously needs a cleaning out, starting at the top.
Has the battle finally been turned in Oklahoma and they're been transferred, so to speak, to a new front?
Things here in America are suddenly changing and have definitely changed since and because of the candidacy of Donald Trump.
Thank You, Heavenly Father!
“Denver has got a 24 hour comedy radio station.”
Really? Which one? I mean, I’d love a comedy channel as I haven’t heard of one, but they all seem to be pretty funny anymore.
