Memorandum outlines procedure for the assignment of Midwest Diocesan parish rectors

CHICAGO, IL [MW Diocese Communications] — In a memorandum dated June 1, 2015, His Grace, Bishop Paul of Chicago and the Midwest outlined the appropriate procedure to be observed “in the event of a Parish Rector vacancy or anticipated vacancy, either as a result of a canonical transfer of the rector, the retirement of the rector or the death of the rector.”

“It is the sole responsibility of the Diocesan Bishop to assign a new priest for the vacant position,” the memorandum reads.  “It is indeed the desire that the best possible candidates are found to lead our diocesan parishes.…  In the spirit of conciliarity, however, the Bishop desires the input from the parish, the chancellor and dean so that he can best accomplish the task before him.”
