    I just don’t understand why some priests are moved around every 6 or 12 years and other priests like Fr. Robert Kennedy are kept/continually reassigned to the same church. I thought there might be less favoritism under the new Diocesan leadership.

  2. avatar Scott W. says:

    Pardon my ignorance, but are there still parishes under lay administration?

  3. avatar Ben Anderson says:

    I could be wrong, but I think this may take care of the final remnants of it. Can anyone name a parish still led by a lay person?

    Here’s one that’s still under lay administration (and look! her picture on the webpage!):

    Here’s another:

    A third-

    I think that’s it for lay administration.

    And there are at least three parishes led by a deacon (clergy) pastoral administrator (unless I’m mistaken, only a priest, not a deacon, can be a pastor)

    Keep praying for vocations!

    St. Marianne Cope Parish

    also –
    The St. Agnes/Paul of the Cross/Rose cluster.
    The Livingston County cluster/parish.

    These three appear to still be under lay administration.

    There are at least three parishes led by deacon pastoral administrators (clergy, but cannot be pastors).

    Sr. Chris Treichel OSF is administrator of St. Ann’s and Sacred Heart in Auburn.

    Barbara Swiecki is administrator of St. Marianne Cope Parish in Henrietta.

    Michael Sauter is administrator of St. Luke the Evangelist Parish cluster, Geneseo area.

    There are Deacons administering Immaculate Conception/St. Bridget’s in Rochester, All Saints Parish in Corning, and St. John Vianney in Bath.

    I can’t believe that Father Paul Tomasso is being appointed as the Vicar General.

    Father Tomasso closed Holy Family Parish on Ames St., Saint Anthony’s on Lorimer St. and Saint Francis of Assisi on Whitney St. in Rochester. He also tried to close Saint Peter and Paul on West Main St. at the same time.

    Father Tomasso was ruthless with the parishioners at all 3 parishes during the closing process. He became known as “Father Death” by his own parishioners.

    The parishioners at Saint Francis never found out what he did with the $178,000 in cash that was in the savings account and the stock certificates in the safe. The parishioners were told that they didn’t have enough money to stay open.

    From St. Benedict Facebook page:
    (12 hrs ago:)

    St. Benedict Roman Catholic Parish, Ontario County

    In this past weekend’s bulletin, the soon-to-be Fr Daniel Ruiz (who will be assigned to our parish as a new priest) invited all of us to attend his ordination on Saturday, June 20. Unfortunately, Deacon Daniel’s mother became gravely ill in the last few days. Daniel has gone back to Columbia to see her, and therefor his ordination has been postponed. While you are still invited to the ordination of the other men, please know that Deacon Daniel will not be present. When a new date is set for his ordination, we will inform everyone. Please take some time today to pray for both Deacon Daniel and his mother, Luz Elena.
