Message to the Catholic Faithful Explaining the Rationale of New Priest Assignments: Intentional support of priestly life and ministry to foster healthy, happy and holy priesthood and ministry

There is a great saying “As the shepherd goes so too the parishioners.” It has been on my heart and in my prayer to find ways to help our clergy be as healthy, happy and holy as possible so they can help each of you be healthy, happy and holy. After listening to insights from clergy, laity and members of the Clergy Personnel Committee, as well as discerning the gifts of priests and insights in prayer, I am changing our approach to priestly assignments for a variety of reasons.
