Some of you have heard that on November 20, 2023, Bishop William Callahan appointed me Adjunct Judicial Vicar for the Diocese of La Crosse. Some of you have wondered if this means I will be leaving the parish. No, I won’t be leaving the parish. This assignment is in addition to my pastorate here. The Adjunct Judicial Vicar is an assistant to the Judicial Vicar of the diocese who works in the Tribunal, usually handling marriage annulment cases. Since I am a canon lawyer, Bishop Callahan has asked me to use my skills in the Tribunal. I might have to be in La Crosse a bit more but I’ll be staying put for the time being.
