My replacement

One of Archbishop-Designate Lucas’ last acts as Bishop of the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois saw the appointment of numerous Pastors, Parochial Administrators and Parochial Vicars. One of these Parochial Vicars is the priest who will replace me here at St. Anthony of Padua parish: Father Davies Edassery, SAC. His appointment begins the first of October.

One of our parishioners asked what the SAC meant at the end of his name. A good question and one that I did not know straight away, but now do: Society of the Catholic Apostolate.

This apostolate includes the Pallotine Fathers, of which Fr. Edassery is a member.
