Oglala Lakota go to tribal court against diocese; Tribal Council passes resolution calling for return of churches to tribe

The Rapid City Journal reports that members of nine Pine Ridge Reservation churches have filed to stop the church closures, which the diocese plans for this Sunday.

In addition, the tribal members are asking the court to prevent the diocese from deconsecrating the churches and attached cemeteries.

Meanwhile, the diocese has called for prayer for Bishop Robertson, who was hospitalized for surgery and is to be resting at home for three weeks.
