News From Fr. Fitzgerald10-15-2017Rev. Richard W. Fitzgerald
I recently was informed that Cardinal Sean O’Malley has appointed me as Vicar Forane for Vicariate IV of the Central Region of the Archdiocese, effective October 1, 2017. What does this mean? A Vicar Forane has the responsibility for assisting the Cardinal and the Regional Bishop in the administration of a certain section of one of the Archdiocesan Regions. In this case, Vicariate IV of the Central Region covers Brighton, Allston, Cambridge, and Somerville. The vicar holds monthly meetings with the priests of the Vicariate to discuss various Archdiocesan issues, programs, and pastoral concerns. The Vicar at times is required to attend meetings and functions at any of the parishes and to act as an intermediary on issues when necessary. I ask for your prayers and support as I take on this additional responsibility.READ MORE
