I note that a couple of dozen people are paying some attention to the provincial's personnel announcements.
About 10 days ago Fr. Tom put out another letter with assignments--nothing earth-shaking. He informed us where the men completing their practical training will go to study theology (3 to the Ratisbonne in Jerusalem, 1 to Immaculate Conception Seminary at Seton Hall U.) and where the men about to start their practical training will go (1 to Don Bosco Retreat Center, 2 to Salesian HS, 1 to Abp. Shaw HS).
He also announced Fr. Jim Berning's appointment to vocation ministry, based in South Orange, and Fr. Lou Konopelski's appointment to the teaching staff at Don Bosco Prep, Ramsey).
Newly ordained Fr. Miguel Suarez will replace Bro. Rob Malusa as CYM at St. Philip Benizi Parish in Belle Glade, Fla., and Fr. Jim Zettel will become youth minister at St. Benedict's Parish in Etobicoke, Ont. (Their ordination is scheduled for June 29.)
This week (June 2-8) Fr. Tom is at the confreres' retreat in Lutz, Fla. He may well discuss coming assignments with some of them, and with the men he'll be on retreat with next week (June 9-15) at Haverstraw.
