Clergy Personnel


Clergy Personnel oversees the assignments of priests and deacons in the Archdiocese. With the approval of the Archbishop, the office facilitates and processes changes of assignment, assuring that parishes and other clergy-dependent ministries are appropriately staffed.  Current statistical and general information about clergy is maintained by this office, and it serves as an important resource to various Archdiocesan offices and agencies.
