Statement of the Diocese of Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi, TX – The Diocese of Corpus Christi has learned that Fr. James Farfaglia, a priest of
the Diocese, had posted, on his private social media page, inappropriate comments concerning
Judge Barbara Canales and other members of our community. It is our understanding that Fr.
Farfaglia has offered Judge Canales and others his sincere apologies for his statements.

The Diocese of Corpus Christi remains committed to the well-known moral principles, based on
the natural law, concerning the human person and sexual relationships. At the same time, we
are also firmly committed to the proper respect for the dignity of each human person, so that
true and fruitful dialogue can always be present in our community.

During this holiest week of the year for Christians, as we commemorate the passion, death, and
resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, we continue to strongly urge all towards civility and
compassion in all of our thoughts, words, and actions with one another.
