Documents for Clergy
The Vicar for Clergy is the Bishop's liaison in all matters pertaining to the ministry of priests, deacons and seminarians in the diocese. He serves as the chair of the Priests' Personnel Board; coordinates the Ongoing Formation of Clergy; and administers the supervision programs for newly ordained priests and new pastoral administrators.
The Office of Vocations promotes and raises the level of awareness in our diocese of the need to foster and nourish vocations to the priesthood and religious life for the church. The Office also provides a discernment process by which men and women can be open to the direction of the Holy Spirit in their lives and discover to which specific vocation God is calling them, and assesses and screens potential candidates for diocesan priestly ministry prior to acceptance into the seminary.
As director of seminarians, Rev. Szatkowski encourages, supports, evaluates and approves diocesan seminary candidates as they progress to the priesthood.
The Diaconal Ministry and Formation Office oversees and coordinates the ministry and continuing education of deacons in the Diocese of Dallas as well as oversees and coordinates the recruitment and formation of candidates for the diaconate.
