The vicar bishops of the arch- diocese will identify the nine parishes of the 153 in the arch- diocese that will participate in the new alternate staffing pro- gram. The vicars are Auxiliary Bishops P. Francis Murphy, William C. Newman and John H. Ricard. In early December the arch- diocesan pastoral council, Archbishop William D. Border,s chief advisory body, unanimously approved a report outlining how parishes will be selected and how they will be managed. The non-priest leader, called a pastoral administrator, will have extensive theological training and will perform all the duties of a priest except for sacramental ministry. , A priest whose main ministry will be elsewhere will be assigned to celebrate Mass on weekends as well as to perform such regular sacramental duties as marriages, baptisms and funerals. Pope John Paul II spoke about the issue last spring, said Shells Kelly, secretary of the depart- ment of personnel for the arch- diocese, so the Vatican is aware of the problems of parish staff- ing in the United States. Other dioceses have ex- perience in coping with the priest shortage. In the Diocese of New Ulm, Minn., for exam- ple, 18 of 74 diocesan parishes are run by administrators, Ms. Kelly said. Most often administrators are women Religious, according to Ms. Kelly, who has been con- suiting archdiocesan groups to hear their concerns. "One of the major points is that this is not good theology. The leader of the community and the leader of the eucharistic celebration is ideally one and the same, I think people realize we're compromising theological tradition." At the December meeting of the archdiocesan pastoral coun- cil, Father Theodore K. Cassidy, pastor of St. Joseph, Sykesville, Md., said, "We need priests who are at the heart of the faith communities. If this is a model for the Catholic Church of the future, it's a bad sign.' l * PRAYER * 0 SINGING 0 FELLOWSHIP * PR 7:00 P.M. EVERY SUNDAYEVENING AISE CHRIST THE KING 3109 BAYARD PK.
