Congratulations to our chaplain, Father Richard Dion, who was named the Dean of the Amoskeag Deanery by Bishop Libasci. The Diocese of Manchester is broken down into nine deaneries and the dean provides oversight and assistance to the parishes and priests of that deanery. The Amoskeag Deanery is made up of the parishes in Auburn, Bedford, Goffstown, Litchfield, and Manchester.
Don't despair, Father Richard is still pastor of St. Anthony's and the chaplain of Trinity High School! With this new position, Father Richard's new title is Very Rev. Richard Dion, V.F. (V.F. stands for vicar forane, another title for dean).
Congratulations to him and the other eight new deans.
