On Tuesday, January 7, 2014, the Consultors of the Diocese of Victoria met at the Diocesan Pastoral Centre, as provided in canons 421§ 1 and 502 § 2, for the purpose of electing a Diocesan Administrator to govern the Diocese during this period while the See is vacant.
We are pleased to inform you that the Consultors elected Reverend John Laszczyk as our Diocesan Administrator. Fr. Laszczyk assumes the pastoral care of the Diocese in accordance with canon 427. (A Diocesan Administrator is bound by the obligations and enjoys the same powers of a diocesan Bishop, subject to several restrictions and the general principle that there be no innovation while the See is vacant.)
Let us join in prayer for Fr. Laszczyk as he assumes this responsibility in service to the People of God in the Diocese of Victoria.
