As we look to the future and the pastoral ministry challenges we face in the Church and in our Diocese, we recognize the need to move towards a model of collaborative and shared ministry.
To that end, Bishop Gary Gordon has, in consultation with the Priest Personnel Committee, made the following pastoral appointment and ministry changes.
Effective March 1, 2019
- Fr. William Hann, recently returned from his sabbatical, will continue to serve as Pastor of Holy Cross Parish, in addition to being appointed as Pastor of St. Patrick’s Parish in Victoria and Bishop’s Delegate to St. Patrick’s School.
- Fr. Bernardo Injou Lee, will retire from full time pastoral ministry. We are most grateful for the replacement assistance offered by Fr. Lee to St. Patrick’s Parish.
- Fr. Karam Alraban,will continue to assist Bishop Gary Gordon at St. Peter’s Parish in Nanaimo, and Our Lady of Victory on Gabriola Island for a period of time, given the Bishop’s responsibility for the pastoral needs of the whole Diocese.
Your continued support and prayers for the ongoing pastoral needs of the Diocese of Victoria are greatly appreciated.
