A bishop is the visible face of any diocese, appointed by the pope to lead the clergy and the faithful. Behind the scenes, a vicar general handles many of the bishop’s administrative tasks.
In order to provide proper pastoral care for the Diocese, the Diocesan Presbyteral Council and Deans ask that each parish record the in-person and online attendance at all weekend and holy day Masses, as well as Sunday Celebrations in the Absence of a Priest (SCAP), beginning August 1, 2022 and continuing through July 31, 2023. All parishes are required to report their numbers each month using an online survey in order to make reporting simple and straightforward.
