Very Reverend Francis Passenant, V. F.—New Dean of QN#6
It is my pleasure to announce to you that Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio has named Father Passenant as Dean of the Queens North #6 Deanery. The appointment becomes effective on January 31, 2019. Father Passenant will continue to minister here as administrator of our parish. As dean, he will assume the additional role of conducting the deanery meetings for the nine Catholic parishes in this area of Queens. He will also meet with the principals and directors of Religious Education in the deanery. The title of vicar forane (V. F.) reflects his new assignment as regional dean.
Please join with me in congratulating Father Passenant and pledging our support as he works to serve the pastoral and spiritual life of the Catholic parishioners in this area of our diocese.
May God accompany you in your new ministry, Father Passenant! — BISHOP SANCHEZ
