Deacon Dan Burns stepping down as Director of Formation

After almost seven years as Director of Formation for the Permanent Diaconate, Deacon Dan will be leaving his position at the end of August  to dedicate more time to family needs and pastoral ministry. Msgr. Bill Fay will be named the Interim Director of Formation until a new deacon director of formation is appointed by the Cardinal.

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
