Pastoral Transition Update - March 2023

On March 2nd the Seton staff, Pastoral Council, Financial Council, and other parish leaders met with a representative from the Archdiocese Priest Placement Office. The meeting included an explanation of the placement process, an exercise to help the leaders with the preparation of the Parish Profile, and an opportunity to ask questions. Since that meeting, the Parish Profile has been finalized and submitted to the Priest Placement Office.

What's next? The Priest Placement Board will review the information provided by the parish, consider those interested in serving at Seton, and make recommendations to the Archbishop. In most cases the Archbishop makes the selections sometime in April. The announcement will typically happen in May. The new priest or administrator will then start their position in mid-June.

What can we do? Be patient and prayerful.
