Message from Most Rev Robert P. Deeley, JCD

Dear Brothers,

The following is a Decree from Cardinal Seán regarding the Deacon Ministerial Policy for Parish Collaboratives. As the Decree states, “Deacons will play a vital role in Disciples in Mission as part of the Pastoral Service Teams,” and assist in the ongoing process of strengthening Parishes as intentional centers of evangelization.

Fraternally yours in Christ,
Most Rev. Robert P. Deeley, J.C.D.
Auxiliary Bishop of Boston
Vicar General and Moderator of the Curia
