Formal Installation as Pastor

Today Bishop Baker came to celebrate the 10:00am Mass at St. Barnabas, at which he formally installed me as Pastor of both St. Barnabas and Holy Rosary. (The office took effect on July 1, 2015, my having been Administrator for the year prior.) This meant that I had to recite the Profession of Faith and make the Oath of Fidelity, indicated by Canon Law (c. 833) for those who assume an ecclesiastical office.

Here is a photo from just after Mass concluded (on the right is Msgr. O’Connor, the Pastor Emeritus):

You can read the entire Profession of Faith and Oath of Fidelity on this page of the Vatican web site. I think you’ll find it edifying!
