Pastoral Assignments Update

June 2nd, 2010, Promulgated by Dr. K

Here’s the latest:

1. Fr. Bernard Dan, previously “Sacramental Minister” of St. Thomas More/Our Lady Queen of Peace, has been assigned to the St. Luke the Evangelist Cluster in Geneseo.

2. Fr. William Coffas, previously Parochial Vicar of Our Lady of Peace in Geneva, has been assigned to be the rector of Beckett Hall. Concurrent with this duty, he will serve as “Sacramental Minister” for St. Thomas Moore/Our Lady Queen of Peace.

I like this move. It makes sense to have a priest younger than 70 assigned to Beckett Hall, where most of our discerners are age 35 or less. From what I have heard, he is also much more solid than the priests previously serving at Beckett. May God help him with his STM/OLQP assignment, though. It’s not going to be fun having “Preaching Margaret” usurp his priestly duty to deliver the homily, as well as having Fr. Hart look over his shoulder.

Update – 8:14 PM
A reader posts the following:
“Fr. Hoan Dinh is also being assigned to Geneva. His first post-ordination assignment was as the priest intern at St. Rita, Webster. There will be a farewell celebration after the 10:30 Mass on June 27. “

    Both Fr. Coffas and Fr. Dinh spent time at St. Thomas More while they were seminarians. Both are very solid, very nice people. I think our prayers need to go with Fr. Coffas. Margaret has gone through two priests in two years.

    St Luke's…WHAT?! Whoa whoa whoa…OLP is getting Fr Bernard Dan and Fr Hoan Dinh…and will Fr. Tomasso remain pastor? How is this all working?

    oh, wait, you typo'ed…Fr Dan to GENESEO, not GENEVA.

    Fr Bill is a solid fellow and a great guy, it's sad to see him go.

    I met Fr Dinh on retreat years ago…nice enough fellow, but I was REALLY excited for a second there

  7. Pardon my spelling.

    Fr. Abas went back to his native country for awhile. When he comes back, he will be parochial vicar (?) of St. Cecelia in Irondequoit. Not sure how that all fits in with the "new" parish in Irondequoit.
