November 7: Installation Mass

For once, I’m going to be pro-active and get something up ahead of time. Don’t get used to this.

As you know, I was recently named pastor of Christ the Divine Shepherd Parish. While I started on October 15th, I have not yet been formally installed by the bishop. You don’t need to be formally installed to assume the office; the decree of the bishop is enough. That said, the formality of the installation can serve as a teaching moment for the parish, and hopefully as a means of building up both unity and mission. If you’re in the area, feel free to join us! And if you’re not in the area, watch us on the diocesan YouTube stream:

  1. Congratulations once again, Mike! I committed myself to be at the Mass for the Deceased Religious on Sunday representing our community, so can’t attend your installation! You will be in my prayers! God bless!
