On May 2 Fr. Tom Dunne, our provincial, made the first announcements concerning the 2013-2014 pastoral year.
The province has been waiting for personnel announcements for many weeks. This announcement was both modest and large: modest in that only one Salesian is affected directly, and large in that it signifies a major change in the scope of the province's Youth Ministry Office.

In a separate communication published in the province's newsletter, Fr. Tom announced the temporary relocation of the SDB personnel of Salesian Boys & Girls Club in East Boston. In view of the physical relocation of the SDB residence from one side of Byron St. to the other, Frs. John Nazzaro and Rich Putnam will take up temporary residence in the parishes where they serve on weekends, and Bro. Bernie Dube has taken up temporary residence in the provincial house. Fr. Rich Cressman has been assigned to Mary Help of Christians Center in Tampa and will not return to East Boston.
|The SDB residence at the corner of Bennington and Byron Sts. will be moved across Byron St. and be set adjacent to the parking lot/playground of the Boys & Girls Club.|
