Election of the Vicar Provincial

April 6, 2020

Due to the covid-19 pandemic, our Electoral Committee had to get more creative in holding the election for Vicar Provincial.  An explanatory letter and ballot were emailed or printed off for each voting member and they were given one week to send in their vote. Voting took place by email, by printed ballot or by phoning their vote in.  There were 3 candidates for this position.  Fr. Joseph de Viveiros, CR, Fr. Jim Link, CR and Fr. Murray McDermott, CR.  On April 1st the final votes were tallied and Fr. Joseph will be installed as our new Vicar Provincial as of July 1, 2020. He will hold this position for a 3 year term.

Fr. Tim Uniac, CR was voted in as Provincial Superior on February 15th. His position is also for a 3 year term and he will be installed as Provincial Superior on July 1, 2020 as well.

Murray McDermott, CR as outgoing Provincial Superior and Fr. Jim Donohue, CR as outgoing Vicar Provincial for all your hard work over the past 6 years.
