of 2013-2014 Pastoral Assignments
A few days ago, Fr. Tom Dunne informed the province of four more assignments for the year ahead. Three were pastoral: a director for the new community in Champaign, an assistant pastor in Elizabeth, N.J., and a coordinator for the shrine sector of the Marian Shrine-Don Bosco Retreat Center. A 4th formalized a change of residence for a senior confrere.
The senior confrere is Bro. Joe Tortorici, who has been at St. Philip Residence in Tampa for a couple of months already for health reasons. Now he's actually assigned to the Tampa community. Bro. Joe had been part of the Abp. Shaw HS community in Marrero, La., for about a dozen years, where he was a beloved contributor to the school's talented marching band.
Fr. Paul Chuong Nguyen, fresh from a lively presence at WYD in Rio with a large contingent of Vietnamese-American pilgrims, will move from Tampa to Elizabeth to serve as assistant pastor of St. Anthony of Padua Church.
