Office of the Chancellor

Office of the Chancellor

The office of the Chancellor sees to it that curial acts are drawn up, authenticated, expedited, and safeguarded in the archives. Annual statistical data is collected to provide reports to the Vatican, the Official Catholic Directory, national and state catholic conferences and to publish the diocesan directory.

The Chancellor provides Letters of Good Standing for our priests and deacons traveling to other dioceses and approves all letters for incoming speakers. The Chancellor is also responsible for the approval and transferring of Marriage Preparation Documents. (Please note that all marriage dispensations need to obtained from the Tribunal Department)
