The Holy Father entrusts the governance of the Archdiocese to the Archbishop, who is a successor of the Apostles and is responsible for the ministry of teaching, sanctifying and governing the diocese. The Archbishop chooses men and women, both ordained and lay, to assist him in this ministry.
Deans collaborate with the Archbishop in the pastoral care of the faithful. Within a defined portion of the diocese known as a “deanery,” the dean attends to the needs and concerns of the priests, coordinates the common pastoral activities of the parishes, and ensures that parochial discipline is observed, particularly with regard to the liturgy.
The Pastoral Center provides servant leadership to the Archdiocese and assists the Archbishop in carrying out his pastoral ministry. The various departments offer resources, services and guidance to the parishes, schools and other ministries of the diocese in their efforts to proclaim the Word of God, celebrate the sacraments and exercise the ministry of charity.
