Saint Lawrence, Pray for us!

The twelfth year of my Priesthood puts a new door in front of me.

Last Monday, my Bishop called to tell me that he was appointing me Administrator of St. Lawrence Parish in Laurence Harbor, NJ.  I begin there on July 1.

Yesterday, I met with the current Pastor, Fr. Joe Szulwach, who was kind enough to show me the church and rectory.  St. Lawrence is only about 9 miles east of St. Thomas, and in the same Deanery, so I've had the chance to get to know him for the past year.

Here's the new place:

I have been following your blog for quite a while and really enjoy it, just have not commented.
Wanted to congratulate you on your new assignment.
In our diocese they are appointing priests as administrators and will install them as pastors as soon as term limits for pastors go into effect. Are they doing the same there?
