New Vocation Director


This past week I had a meeting with my bishop, the Most Reverend Michael Warfel. He asked me to assume the role of vocation director with responsibility for recruiting seminarians. I will be replacing him in this role. Our Vicar General will be responsible for the seminarians once they are accepted and sent to the seminary.

I am looking forward to this new responsibility. I ask for your prayers for myself, and also for my parish as we adjust to my new role. I'll be doing a lot more traveling and we'll have to rely more on substitute priests.

Congratulations on this important new responsibility!

Will you continue to be the state chaplain for the KofC?

Congratulations, Father! What a blessing you will be to our Church. I'm so pleased to learn that you have been chosen for this role.

I just realized I didn't answer the question about state chaplain for the KofC. Yes, I will stay on in the role as well for the time being. :)
