I am pleased to announce that Bishop Dennis Sullivan has assigned Father Vigilius Amanze as a part-time Parochial Vicar for St. Damien. Father Vigilius’s appointment is effective immediately.
Father is a member of the Congregation of Missionaries of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Mary whose local community is headquartered in Linwood, NJ where he will reside. In Bishop Sullivan’s letter of appointment, he indicated that Father Vigilius will work primarily with the Spanish community but will also assist with Masses and ministry to the English community.
Father was born in Nigeria and completed his seminary studies in Argentina. He is 30 years old and was ordained a priest in October of 2020.
Please welcome Father warmly to our parish staff.
Father Tom Newton
